    dude... that's sweet! It's like a Thunder Creek on 'roids.

    I'm going to tie some of those up for spring pike in the valley as well.
    Pursue happiness with diligence.

    I think the fish will appreciate the fatness.

    IMHO, you should try to clean up the sides, make the hair come down to the midway dorso-ventral point to cover up the thread wrapping...either that or use lateral scale or some other flash element to cover that up and add some flicker.

    So i tried cleaning up the sides, turns out it was a pain in the butt, so i took out the thread wraps in the back and threw some pink down the side. "THUNDER CREEK ON 'ROIDS"-I like that!

    love the red octo hooks but I'm not sure if they're necessary... seems like most big fish would try to munch those smolt head-first... but I dunno, I'm not a fish, so hard sayin not knowin..
