Nicely done.

 

M3407DT is good inexpensive hook. I use them quite a bit.

Looks good Bob.

 

My articulated mouse pattern I played around with last spring ended up looking more like a snake in the water. One thing that helped it alot was the foam head, I used rabbit fur so once it was wet the back would sink but the head stayed afloat.

 

I will be tying more this year in different colors to look more like a snake. I was disappointed overall because i didnt catch anything the "mouse". Lots of smallmouth follows but none would seal the deal.
