When these little guys are cruising the surface you can watch fish go airborne chasing them.

Very cool pattern, Fred. I like the body profile a lot, and the double wing. To this untrained eye, it looks like you've nailed the proportions. Do they float, or are they just for show?

Thanks Shawn. The abdomen , thorax and head are created out of thread and deer hair and will float really well. The wings will make it difficult to cast. So I'll probably just dap with it. I was tying the amber wing for special project and it didn't make th cut so it'll get fished . It wont have the motion of the live counter-part but it should cast a siloette the fish are familiar with.I'll let you know how it works.
