That looks perfect. 

Is the pink note right behind the eye something that you tied in or just a cool effect from the flash in the picture?

Thanks :th:  Yea that pink isn’t anything I added in. Maybe from the pearl lateral line. Looks cool tho.

Some more whores from recent orders. 

Very nice ties. What are you using for the head of the fly? Is that a fish skull product?

Original albie whore pattern calls for hot glue.  That's what I still use.  These look like glue as well but not 100% on that..

Thanks very much. The fly uses a glue gun to weld the hackles and lateral flash on, but it’s also used for the head. While the glue is very hot, it’s delicately tapped and pushed around with a wetted finger. This has to be done quickly and precisely because the glue begins to harden within seconds.

here are a few warriors missing materials and eyes and have mangled hooks, lateral line flash is always the first to fall off, i never glue gunned so the feathers never combine with the estaz
