      Was tinkering last night and this is the result . I intended on it looking like a hellgrammite.

      Looking good. Anything dark, fuzzy and with goose biots should work well. Any peacock herl in the makeup?

        Neil , I used copper peacock dubbing from FTD , I’m going to try other colors as well . Next one will probably be regular peacock dubbing.

          This one was done with peacock dubbing black. I do notice that it looks better using furnace hackles as well. First one I used furnace hackle , second one I used cree .

                I like the short hackle body. Very nice.
