Roger that Rogers....the front hook is just for holding it in the vice.

The pimped out bit is the Rainy pop head...its painted using a technique called stippling.

how does that peacock hold up on those?
It holds up ok...the pattern itself is pretty well tried, true and tested around here.

Very nice Big E, but will the fish care ;)
The bottom is stippled as well...very light yellow, gray. IMO, I think the color and design will make a difference over straight white. One only has to look at the color variations of rapalas or bass poppers to make the connection.

but why the circle hook?

i used to use #4 owner mosquito and then i ran out and started using a #2 owner mosquito and WOW!!!! i land way more fish on the surface now then i did, i used to just be a searching fly for me but now its a main tactic

Better and safer hookups...sure the gap is reduced but you can always go to a bigger hook as you did.
