Another scrappy photo for you guys. I've been searching for some less seen patterns and of course I found this one on the phantoms site. I used B&G macaw body feather for the body veil since I don't have toucan. It's Tied on an altered vintage mustad.

That bright yellow burst would really attract some attention!! I could have used that this morning on the Rogue, but I'd have probably hung it on the same rock as my Carron. T-11 on intermediate was knocking the hellgrammites off the rocks!

Super! Very Nice with the smooth tinsel body over a looped blind hook - Not easy to do.
I'm really glad someone recognized that! I really struggled with getting it smooth, I used braided mono for the eye and the hook was straightened (mostly) so it left me with a very tough platform. Mylar would have made it easy but who wants That?!?

Sorry amigo. I had only a few hours, and wanted to fish that old Hardy Uniqua I just bought from James Reid. What a beauty! I'm surprised you didn't hear me ripping line off! :chuckle:

Josh, it's tough to tell from the photo. I'm curious if you applied a type of finish to that hook or was it original like that ?
