Thanks a lot, that sounds good to me!

Kinda curious - did you make all the collars at once, or twist each up individually? Do you a machine to do this? Pretty darn cool tie.
I did each fly's collar individually. Basically the same idea as Jerry french uses. Lay down a little dubbing, then one side of a hen saddle, a bit of Amherst tail, and finally a bit more dubbing. Then pop it in a dubbing loop. Had to double my thread for the loop in order to get enough tension.

That's a gorgeous composite loop. Well done. Seeing polar bear with a skillfully done loop and truly "hot" hot spots tells me this will look as wonderful to the fish as it does to me. Great work!

As you can tell from my avatar, the Freight Train is a favorite pattern of mine :D:D
You did this pattern well, those are awesome offerings and I wouldn't hesitate one bit looping one on my tippet :smokin::smokin:
I'm a big fan of sparse dressing and feel there is nothing more fishy-sexy than a sparsely tied fly. That thin body is stellar and sets the tone for these flies.

Ubber cool :smokin::smokin:

Kaufman really nailed that colour combo on the pattern. That is a really nice version in your avatar!

Thanks, I really focused on the slim body, tested in a bowl the cut right through the surface and seem to sink great. Should fish nice on a dry line.
