    Bendable, Moldable

    Sounds like a piece of wire connecting the two hooks. Just my opinion, but I think a red hook would look great as the second.

    #20? #22? #32?!?

    Makes me glad I fish warm-water. A #12 is small and #18 is tiny. 50% of my fishing is #10 and #12, another 30% is #8.

    Trout guys must have better eyes.

    Maybe I'm not thinking clearly yet, but doesn't Hippourus sound suspiciously like the greek root hippos? That would make the first fly a horsefly, wouldn't it? By definition only perhaps.
