Nice Zip, I still have yet to catch a crappie they aren't as common out here. Was it the little black and silver dubbing bugger with bead chain eyes or a wild card?

The dubbing is from FTD blend of super kracken all blacks, and light grey starburst.

Got mine picked up today. Great set of buggers. I especially like to see that others are going in the direction of purple flies. I've been a purple thrower for years with conventional gear and now am tying more flies with it. Where I really felt purple stood out was on dark days or limited light conditions. I've been catching bass and pike regular on the usual fire tiger and chartreuse but then cloud cover came in and things slowed way down. Switch to purple skirt with a tarnished brass blade and things picked right up again.

 

Thanks for hosting to all for the great contributions.
