A Fat (fancy) Bastard woolhead.
Cut into shape.. in the last phase the cutted wool almost get airborne (Thickness of one single fiber approx 24 micron.)
If you pack them really tightly, than you've kept some serious silhouette after cutting into desired shape. (Picture above is the rear end of this pike fly.)
I've been using the Partridge -Ad Swier- absolute pike fly size 4/0 and 6/0 for this articulated pike fly.
(Right picture: formed, unformed shape.)
Some pics just for the fun of it..
after a few takes this 'fly' looks like some kinda ancient battlefield flag. (And I'm just lovin it! lol)
Have a nice summer fishery,
