    Nick,
    It is the smallest size fish mask.
    Stick on eyes covered with UV cure to keep them on.

    When I saw the 1st photo, initially I thought you were getting ready for a Scandinavian fly-fishing inspired dart tournament, lol. Good luck when the season opens, Adam.

    Very nice pattern. I used to fish a steelhead fly my buddy nicknamed Lady Godiva, it too was in your signature color (with a hint of lavender added for contrast.)

    I just put in my order of ripple ice last night, been curious about that material.
    Is it pretty supple?
