    Nice dressing ! I remember a pattern a fellow fisher way back in the day- (70's) used to tye an fish called a "Mover" he used more olive tones though, anyway, this kind of reminded me of that pattern with all the guinea. Again, nice bug !

Atleast in the Willamette river valley: Hook: Mustad 3399 Size 6 to 16 under weight 12 wraps of hook appropriate size lead wire Tail: Oppossum and mylar (peacock) rib: copper wire Body: oppossum thorax: Black Sparkel dubbing legs: partridge
  13. gawd awful fantastic!!!! sumthin about blue
  14. that is great, so edible looking to a fish I would think
  15. the subtle contrast's are amazing, #$#$ pretty dressing
  16. one thing about feathers and UV , is they need to come from birds near or in the mating season. Atleast I think that i ssome of what DM has taught us. Male Red Wings in the spring are excellent but later on lose their UV reflectivness(sp). This is what Dave studies in his relentless pursuit of butterflies is the correlation of UV in insect mating activity and birds, hence feathers.
  17. that is one sweet dressing!!!! I have a box that could stand a dzn or so of those beauties.
