paint it different colors. use different materials
 
yes there are many other ways this fly could be tied but thats totally up to YOU
 
tie it in YOUR favorite sizes and fish it in YOUR favorite way of fishing

Fly tying - The art of attaching feathers, fur, wool, and silk to a tiny hook to create artificial lures that imitate insects, a skill easily mastered by anyone who can peel a grape blindfolded with a pair of tweezers and a butter knife while wearing oven mitts.

Flytire ... have you fished this pattern?  Without weight, is there enough wood to float the hook?
