    Tied mine last night, now have a bag full of green deer hair clippings. They are in the mail today and should get up to Everett B4 Christmas! At least that what the USPS said.

    Bakerite, that is a ton of spun deer hair. I've often wanted to play with a pattern like this but always end up indicatoring to create the same effect. This pattern will change that for me. Nice JOB!

    Way to go USPS! That was impressive fast service. Irafly. this is one of the few bugs that I have used that fish will come back to multiple times....I think the deer hair has a lot of "give" so it feels real to them.
