    Kinda, it's a variation on the MOAL, or standard string leech... I don't weight it though, and I add the little "hootis" of rabbit hair at the head to add bulk... :) The Dollies and Bulls seemed to like it on the OP, so who knows? :confused: :confused:

    OK, mine went in the mail today and just so you know I believe in the idea that uglier flies represent an easier meal (wounded, outcast etc.) and my flies reflect that ! ;)

    Not as young as I used to be, and as a result, I lost track of who still has not, sent in their flys!
    So speak up, you know who you are :hmmm:

    How could you cope with the shame and dishonor, of being last-in, and late, to boot? bawling:

    BTW: Backyard??...:rofl: ;)

    Hi Papafish,

    I'm still working on mine. I just finished a batch of Skwala nymphs and dries for use later the next month on the Yak. I'll continue work on my sculpins this evening. I tend to push things off to deadlines, but I make 'em.

    Dammit,

    Flies are done, but didn't get them in the mail. I'll put them in USPS priority tommorow. If anyone wants a piece of me, just PM and I'll send a small chunk of my a**! ;) ;) ;) ;)
