Nice looking ties guys! I'm almost done as well and will have them in the mail in plenty of time. I don't really have a decent camera to take pictures, but maybe I'll take one with my phone and see what happens...OK, here it is. The pic sucks, but hopefully you can tell it's black and pea-cocky. It has some nice flash in the water and the fish like it too...

Minor dilemma fellas. When I tie for myself I make some of these unweighted, some with a bead head and some with large lead eyes and an finish it with angel hair in a dubbing loop. All 3 have their time and place. Should I leave this one unweighted? I kinda like them that way cause you can swing em all the way into the rocks in type 3 water and then you can add a 1/16th oz worm weight (basically same as large lead eyes) and dredge a bit. And I know some prefer fishing unweighted. I guess since I'm mailing them I could possibly make to order even.

Mine are coming along, bout half way through and need some more materials, but should meet the dead line. From the photos shown, bright/big, big/black, sparse/light seems to be covered so I opted for natural colors, with lots of profile and movement, for those days when it's low and clear.

It kinda looks like a 3rd trimester abortion from a sand shrimp, that had a threesome with a sculpin and a crayfish, but she wasn't sure who the baby daddy was.

Yard, sounds like that will fish just fine!! You had me at lots of profile and movement, but to add that it fits the bill for all those tastey things it should get some eats for sure.
