Very nice Ranger Eunan, and on one of my favorite hooks. You are making giant leaps in your ASF's with each tie, keep it up, I think we all enjoy and appreciate your efforts. The first thing I noticed is your rib is wound counter clockwise, don't know if it matters, just something I noticed. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Mark,

The rib...well it wasnt tied in properly and when i wound it clockwise, there was some of the inner material showing, so i wound it that the white would be under the hook, from the other size it looks good.
Not that i think it matters too much, but i do usually wind them clockwise!
