    I like the look of that Byron. The head looks interesting, care to share how you did that?

    Thanks Cliff!
    I tie it as a half-bullethead. Do so in order to keep the deer hair from flaring too much. When I get a chance, I will post a couple pics of that step.
    Thanks again!

    Tie egg sack and body to about thorax area.




    Move thread to just behind the hook eye


    Measure stacked deer hair and flare the hair just behind the eye Hold the deer hair on TOP of shank so it stays on TOP of the hook shank.
