Sweet! I've had good luck with that one too. I'm surprised you got so many fish on it, that fly is pretty fragile.

Word to the wise: if you dare to tie with super hair - hold on to it with a vise-like grip - it tends to pop off the hook until you tie it down. A lined jaw on your hackle pliers may help - some - but prepare for a lot of foul language.

Use 16/0 or finer white thread underneath - makes the hook white, so the colors show through on the super hair - but keeps the hook from getting too fat from thread turns. Utter delight when you get done with the super hair. Wet down the strands of the fluoro fibre with a little water or pull em over your tongue - sounds weird, but we've all done it - makes working with it a breeze. (And I didn't change colors of thread - just used a Sharpie)

Got Fish?
More importantly, SET THE HOOK!

I still say he married me because he took me ice fishing and I still wanted to go fishing with him again!
