    Do you have to listen to opera while tying, lol? That is quite buggy-looking.

    God, I hope not! Baroque or early classical.

    More klinkhammer fun. These are size 16's. I found multiple colors of dyed goose biots at a local craft store.

    Any excuse to play with weird colours and concepts. After my murky water experience on the Canal for SRC, this came out of the vice.
    A dark purple and black, articulated "sculpin" with some red beads on mono for a little sound activity.
    We shall see :)

    I really dig the combo of Gama C14S #6 and a 23mm Senyo Microshank. Much versatility!

    Some worms I tied up from another pattern that gave me the idea.

    I've tied a few Shih Tzu and Lab patterns. Now I occasionally use dubbing salvaged from the dryer lint trap when I launder Hank's fuzzy dog blankets. It comes-out kind of gray with gold/green/brown highlights and a smattering of white & dark brown guard hairs in it.
