She's a bit slender, but looks good in fishnet!

SciGuy, thanks for the pattern, but you didn't mention the "red dumbell eyes" that I see in your pics. That spot of red might have contributed to your fly's success. A bit of red is an important detail in many of my cutthroat patterns. At least I think so, and that gives me a little more confidence in my flies, even if it doesn't make them more appealing to the fish.

That's a really good point. Almost all my flies have a little flor. orange, hot pink or red. With clousers I typically secure the belly material behind the eyes with thread of one of those shades. I didn't this time, hence the red eyes. With S&As I use those colors of thread and wrap down the tube far enough so that about 1/8th of an inch shows below the cone to suggest a gill slit. I maybe be over thinking thinks a bit but it seems to work.

Tim, I'm counting it regardless! ...not sure it was quite 22" though.
