Wow. You guys are making this tough. Really nice tie, Barnes. Is that one strip of black between the green/red? Great proportions.

 

Din. That looks like my dog. He's about that size, too. :lol:

Yeah a single filament of black, if my eyes didn't fall me, diff. need more light over my vise. Married in a piece of about 5 or 6 filaments and then removed what I didn't want..................................way too fustrating handing such a small portion of feather.

You guys should take those flies down to river and have a contest with them, see if you can get a big brown to bite Santa in the ass.
