The most interesting feature was the shape of the hook and I thought it would be interesting to see what I could come up with it.
Well, after tying and finishing a fly (it took me 5 attempts to finish a fly) I have the following conclusions:
- light wire hooks are great, but if they bend under the slightest pressure/pull of tying thread, they are a major PITA to tye with
- the hook eye is tiny - I wonder how I will be able to get some 5x through that hook eye
Here is the fly I tied with it with different backgrounds. Interesting how each background highlights the fly differently.
Also, since I was at the vise, I thought I'd tie some micro buggers - you never know when they come in handy.
Happy New Year and tight lines!
