I had alot of fun fishing this pattern in 2018, I'm tying a few up tonight for a swap with a friend from Texas. Last time we tied together I was just getting started at the vise so I hope his box is a big surprise!
I just followed the Tighlines video for this pattern.
fast shutter speed, 125-200
lamp directed right at object
My aperture was 1.8
This pic actually had a faster shutter speed (300) than that because at 125 you could still make out the wall and my couch in the background. I used the manual settings on my cell and made sure it was taking it's version of RAW and the highest resolution setting. I wish I had used a second light source to get a better exposure on the tail end. I had to up the exposure a little, original pic is about half a stop darker.
