Most of the wings are curved down but there were a few that were hard to get right. Beagle hair isn't the easiet material to work with, it has a natural curve to it which is kinda annoying, what i like about it is that it doesn't flare. I think this fly would be a good attractor. Doesn't really resemble anything, sort of like a carey special, hopefully it will catch fish like a carey special.
i did it when she was pretty tired, i got them from her back since that was the longest hair. She kept thinking i was petting her and would rolloever and want be to scratch her belly, got kind of annoying.
LOL, just came across this. i use my beagles hair in alot of my flies ( u using 100% bluetick? thats where the moneys at) i started by cutting little pieces off the tail but found that a few scratches on the belly easly shed enough off
