Nice, Kimbaya.   I have not tied or tried any JW bucktail style flies yet, I like the martini reference though.

Good looking flies, Kim!  I've still got the series you sent me tucked away in my warmwater stream box.  I plan on putting them to use when I try to set the state Grass Pickerel fly rod record (Currently vacant) later this winter/spring.  So, assuming things go according to plan, this will be one for the record books before too long.
