Thanks for the hook size follow up Ondrej. Smaller than I thought but looks so good I've got to add it to my already "over stuffed" damsel box.
I don't know if you ever tried damsels like these in colors other than Browns or Olives, but in recent years I've had some great success using a brownish orange color. I think the supply houses call it "crawdad orange or rust". I tie a pattern that looks like yours on a size 12 3XL. I'm betting that changing the style to a smaller hook and using your method of extending the body is going to keep me arm weary.
