    Not that matching the hatch means anything in Alaska (dear god, who's ever really seen a purple leech suching on an egg ) but can you get those rubber egg beads in more of a darker red....that's a bit more natural color and it could be fun to have a few of each.

    Great pattern, vise is coming out of the closet as we speak.

    Also, does that rubber bead sink, rise or neutral...curious how much weight a guy might want, whether it be a lead wrap or some small eyes.?

    Thanks

    Cabin fever is setting in. Look the amazing stuff your tying. God forbid i had to come to america to find some open water and wish i had that dang crawdad pattern with me. My uncle in laww or what ever he is has a cafish pond and we are using tails to catch them. God that fly would slay them.
