I think I've heard them called both filoplume and aftershaft. Fun material to play with, I was throwing it away for a long time, until I saw a SBS using it and then started to use it in places.

the eyes are some black nickel bead chain eyes. the ones i posted in the damsel thread, the originals, had black foam eyes. i liked the one with foam eyes on a sinking line but i like these more since ive been using floating lines lately but still want it to get down a little.

Ah, got it. The swimming action will dive the nose a bit. But that shouldn't be very prominent when fished micro slow to trout that are selective and expect an actual damsel-pace retrieve.

Done. Just gotta send em.

I gotta admit, I really mailed it in with this one. My apologies ahead of time for my ultra simple pattern. It does catch fish... In large numbers at Tunkwa when I used to fish there. Things have been so friggin hectic here I just finally had to pick something simple and go with it. Between work, some family issues, boat issues, and then sending my cell phone for a swim just in the past few days I just haven't had time to devote.

Plus, I found out that I truly dislike tying damsels for some damned reason.
