Hook: #8 Allen 2302
Tag: Blue Flash FTD
Body: Grey Flymaster 6/0
Rib: Blue Flash FTD
Abdomen: Peacock Herl
Collar: Blue Short Cock Hackle

Saw the flash, wanted to try it as a rib or body...went well with the grey flymaster so rib it was. Threw a blue hackle into the mix and then that @#%@% song from 5th grade French class started in my head..."bleu, bleu, lamour est bleu"...Someone shoot me...it won't stop!!!!!!! :(

I'll fish for anything I tell ya!!!

Looks good Murray! It's fun playing around with flash - I use it on a lot on my saltwater heads. BTW: you should consider yourself lucky you've got a nice French song running through your head. With me, it's usually the theme from "Mr. Ed," or worse yet, "Gilligan's Island." On one particularly gruesome day, it was "Surfer Bird," by the Trashmen. Now THAT was a bad day.

Thanks Peterjay, I guess you're right..if I walked around humming Gilligan's Isle all day I would get some baffled looks.

This is like, my third attempt at spinning deer hair, it's very bouyant and sits right when floating, or sunk and released, so I'm happy :D

Wavey, if Bruce says you have aptitude in spinning hair....definitely take it as a complement...look at his avatar and then see what else you can find on here of his involving deer hair...Some sweet flies going up so far this month!

Oh I'll test those for you, durability and all that. I'd hate you to lose a fish on a new fly. I'll run that risk for you :D :D :D :D
