Went to a smaller hook for this one.....An Adlington Hutchinson that I don't have the size for, but it is about an 1 5/8" long.

 

The wings creased near the bottom on both sides, but I liked the shape a bit better becasue it matched the tail pretty good.

 

Roof came off center a bit on the far side down near the head.

 

Body hackle and throat are a bit long, not as webby as I would like. The throat is guinea which is from a bad purple dye job I did a while back, but it seemed to fit alright as sub.

 

Kind of wish I would have used a strip of Kori in between the upper Yellow and Red Sections.

 

Fire Away!!

Looking great to me also Frank! I really like the shape but wish you wouldn't add the reverse curve near the tips as you shape the wing. The throat and hackle are just a bit too long but the weight is very nice.

 

Great work, let's see another.
