I kinda thought it sucked. Still gonna display it because it was a pain and I spent way to much time on it

Like I said, it's not perfect but I think it's very nice. Save it, tie more and compare them. When you think you've excelled enough, fish with this one. I think it would be really cool to see a picture of it in the corner of a freshly caught trouts mouth.

Very nice, I am sure the pike will love it. Are the stripes drawn free hand with a sharpie, or do you use some sort of stencil?

As always, very nice ties all around.  especially those wet caddis pupa @Old Hat, great looking hooks also.

Free hand.   I use permanent markers to color all my poppers, sliders and crease flies.  Lines are either with Sharpie or the the fine point of the permanent marker.

Thank you.  I am a bit old school and still partial to bronze hooks. I just started using the contemporary barbless hooks this year.  These are Firehole hooks.  I like them.
