    Great tie Matt….use these in Jersey and they work great . Saw a video from the Blue Ribbon site and started to tie them with a little orange post to help see them better.

    It should be noted that Craig Mathew’s ties this pattern using his zelon dubbing for the thorax, a mix of rabbit and zelon. I believe he also uses a whole strand of zelon for the shuck and wings.
