    Here's one of eight done. Now I remember why I detest tinsel bodies. But it does look really good up close with the two ribs.

    Mine are half way done. I get them in the mail before the end of the week.

    I'll try and get a photo up tomorrow after work.

    Marty,

    Glad to see you got my Orange Herons. As I mentioned in the note included with them, they are on #3 AJ Spey Hooks, which are my favorite size for them.
