Can't wait to give it a swing!! Hope you like it.

Frank, i was lookin' at your fly again and was reminded that i had once used fly line backin' to do an eye. It was a real bright florescent orange colored backin' too. Pretty out there. If i remember right, the main color of the fly was purple. Orange and purple works ok. :D But next time i'm gonna try it on a much larger hook than i did with that other one. My eye came out way to bulky for the size hook i used it with. Backing is not exactly a small diameter material. Also, i think i'll do what you did and strap it all the way down the shank to where the body starts. Thankx Pal. mark..... B)
