    Rob,

    You must have missed the wallaby :cool:

    Seriously now - Llama is readily available these days from many flyshops. Or substitute some fine synthetic fibers - no worries.

    Cheers,

    I can hardly wait. Seriously though, Hans, I am eternally grateful for you videos as I have begun to spend more time at the bench now that I am retired. I can't make it to the size 22 wolly bugger but I keep trying.:)

    I've used llama for awhile. One of my buddies was a llama trainer so I had a natural supply.

    At least Hans hasn't used Eye of Newt... yet.:)

    (I can't tie a size 16 WB)

    This will be a great estuary fly to use in the next month or two, targeting SRC.

    Thanks Hans
