wow, looks crazy hard. ambitious effort, cool results. I'm not a huge fan of topping winged flies for aesthetics, but this looks pretty cool.

May I ask, what hook is this? I rather like the shape, the point, barb and gutters are pretty damn nice.

Yeah, I wouldn't even think about tossing out a twelve dollar hook. I wouldn't even think about spending that on a hook either!! You guys are crazy!!!

Great tie, by the way, Kev! I only got to four crests and had to give up.

I love it when I order from Ronn and get a "reject" what a treat, ita funny I can't see anything wrong with the "rejects". That wire size on that hook of yours is sweet!

matt i agree his reject are stillamazing but side by side with one that not a reject you can tell.little difference and i find the none rejects( from what i have) are easier to wrap thread edge to edge then the rejects

I really like this one Kevin.
I think you should re-tie it on a hook worth $1 and take it swimming :hihi:
