first ever stimulator and i can see areas needing improvement

 

not too crazy about collins hackle wrapped on the body and it needs to be slightly shorter. switch to whiting

 

front hackle needs to be slightly longer

 

shorten the tail just a bit

 

however it will catch fish


An ostrich’s eye is bigger than it’s brain. I happen to know some people that have the same thing.

A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. Somedays i feel the same way

A "grammatical pedantry syndrome" is a form of OCD in which suffers feel the need to correct every grammatical error that they see. Guess who?

Looks good to me! I think (like you said) it will fish great! The fish wont care. To hackle the front larger with the same feather size, then just dub the head. Dubbing will bulk up that section and also give it a different color (if you so choose). If you dub it thick, the. That hackle will be appear larger, and tied with the same feather.

Telling flytire how to tie better flies is akin to telling Einstein how to do algebra.

Well I apologize, my suggestion on his fly was probably stating the obvious as well. Im sure he already knew that trick. I was wrong to give him advice .

Norm,

Thanks. Future versions will have a tail of red deer hair or bucktail; the quills were a pain in the a.s.
