    The only colours i would add to your selection Mike is Mustard (vaal magic - confidence) and a creamy yellow (worked like magic befoer on certain days).

    As for the rest, i am with you 100%.

    Will be tying some as soon as i can find the time between all the work i have been loaded with.

    Hope to finish it all including my class on friday and get out for some fishing.

    What a good pattern. I tied it on saturday for fishing on sunday and the first fish that was caught was a 2.5kg barbel.
    The second (and my first yellow for the season) was a 3Kg fish. Not a bad way to start the season...
    I did however use normal olive for the abdomen but it worked just as well.
    Thanx for the pattern
