    Nice fly chap! I tied one or two recently myself.. I think it's a fairly simple fly to tie and a little winner. I also like what Sage mentioned there about the purple. I reckon I must start tying one or two in purple myself..

    Some patterns I've tied recently, I'll post below.. As Sage referred to the Striped Mullet Minnow earlier you can see more of the process on how I tied it, if you search my previous post titled "Striped Mullet Minnow". The advantage with these is you get to weight them slightly in the front with dumbell eyes also adding to the action.. When fishing for Bass etc, one can also add a weedguard.

    Ryan, great flies, like them alot, I like your combimation of colours and the use of a permanent marker. Don't think there's much that's going to turn down that tidy morsel.

    Thanks for the comments chaps, nice to have one's work (or is that play?...according to SWAMBO) appreciated...

    BigWillie : regarding an SBS - yup, you're taking a chance. My fly photo skills clearly need to be honed, but that being said, I will be tying a few more of these and will endeavour to get some pics done then...hope that's OK.

    Thanks again.
