Here's my first Luzerne, compared to the photo display. I used Pearsall's silk thread instead of polyester floss, on the theory the Pearsall's will look better wet. I used a chrome hook but the black hook photographs much better... not sure the fish will notice. I tied my mallard flank in a bunch at the top... maybe I need to mix the bunch together first so the feathers don't all concave up... I'll try that and see... Any other tips to get this looking better are appreciated...
