As with some of the other tiers that frequent this forum ... I have to scold you.

You can't just put a hook through a live shrimp and say you tied a realistic fly !!!

 

Looks very good, Steffan.

When someone ran a hook through my gut my legs bent and I hollered a bit.


Life is too serious to take it too seriously!

Hi buddy,
That is really nice. Don't burn your hand on the spool when the fish role on that fly.
