    Playing around with different materials and came up with this. Back prop is red seal and front is another ball of red seal with white polar bear. Finished off with a huge orange guinea and black marabou. The guinea isn't that well noted, think I would be better off with amhearst. Whatcha think?

    I like it, but agree amherst would show up better throughout the fly. I tested some intruders over the weekend and was very surprised how well amherst showed up in the water. I'm gonna add it to future ties. Obviously I did not find any steelhead to confirm or deny their love of amherst.

    Nice tie! I like to use amhearst and just got a big natural one recently.
