That I was guessing the materials you used.
Sometimes photos can be misleading and I really like the look of this pattern. Since you called it a nymph, I was surprised that you used cock hackle even if it was from a Chinese cape. It just looks buggy to me and I like to follow the successful patterns posted here as closely as possible.
I really have to stop being intrigued by the posts here. I've got so many new patterns already tied for testing this Spring but I'll add this to the "try them" box. Thanks for the post and info.
