So Brood Dude was very generous to send me 20 of these great Dave McNeese blue heron hooks.

I don't have a lot of classic materials but this stuff was in hands reach so I twisted up this. I hope it shows the hook a bit of the style they deserve.

too much wing

You did a fine job from tail to head but the wing is both too full and too long. Not that it won't catch fish mind you, its just not the right proportions.

Thanks for the input you are spot on. It is hard not to use the whole length of PB when all you have is over 4" and it is all so shiny and white:D

I like the colours you chose for this.

PB is one of those materials that less is more. Every time I think, ok thats barely enough for a wing. Then I put it on the fly, and lone behold I could have used about half of what I cut off.

keep it up :)
