So I snagged a set of Skagit Master DVD's. The Howell video piqued my interest in some colors I don't use enough and his squidro. So I played around and this is what I came up with. I did not use the grizzly hackle wing (I guess this makes is more of a "guide" fly). But I did use UV polar chenille to make the body. Still an open body but with a little more dance and some flashy translucence. Head is too crowded, but this is a common issue with me and barbell eyes. Anyway...here's what my first pass looks like.
