Pattern Olive Ostrich


I couldn't come up with a better name so this is the working title.

Before the wind came up on Saturday, I had a chance to try this little experimental guy. It's obviously a variation of a Pheasant Tail but with some significant changes. As I caught a number of trout with the dude before the wind beat me off the lake, I have high hopes for the pattern.
