This one is tied on a 4.5 inch hook, 8/0 XXL

Completely from my imagination.

Beautiful and unusual. How long did it take you to tie it? Did you have a complete visual image of it before starting?

Thanks guys.

I'd say it took me about 7 - 8 hours. I did it section by section over about 8 days. THe wing as it is now, is the second wing design, the first one didnt work out.

As for vision. I had a vision of a completely differnt fly, both in style and dimensions, which morphed at the vise. I'd finish one section and think of something to do with the other. Jungle cock, as is obvious, ended up being the over riding influence in the progression of the design.

Frank, Mike influenced the size of the hook, other than that, as mentioned above, I had a completely different outlook for the fly....

Absolutely a piece of art.
