Brandon, I really liked your pattern but you know how it is, just had to fiddle with your original a bit.

Looking good Bill! I like the larger wing case. Gonna have to give it another go in brown

AJ, hook style # is 31515

Oops, sorry it's a 31510 not 31515. You can get a similar hook by custom bending any 3XL heavy wire hook. Just start the bend at about midpoint on the shank and open the hook gap as you go.

AJ, just looking through the hooks available in similar styles. I think a Dia-Riki egg hook in a size 6 would be a better choice for this pattern. I'm thinking the size 4 is too large for this pattern unless I try it with the hook point up?

Good stuff. I like it how it is, there's pretty much no risk of a short strike and the large hook gap keeps them hooked.

Thanks AJ. I like this sharing of ideas. Having a place to exchange thoughts is great.
