    Weight? I guess about 5 pounds. It's heavier than the stock Rinzetti base. It doesn't move around when I'm butchering ( attempting to tie ) a basic fly pattern. A little heavy to be portable.

    Made mine. One inch aluminum, with a magnet inserted (under the hooks). Went with gloss white to reflect light.

    Nice pictures, good story. BUT:

    I pretty much tie that same fly, with a dark head. Just change the body color per bug. Olive,tan,grey, white or yellow. Covers all my may fly needs. I find color not as important as size or shape.

    Very nice. I tie something close to that, but not nearly as elegant.
