i submitted a few flies. the flies are on Erics post in the open discusion forum, called blowout wrap up. if the winning fly was # 8 then it was a white chenille fly. extra long marabou tail on a 8089 hook. white chenille was backwrapped [like the worm] around the tail then forward to the eye . stick on eyes applied . super simple .

Congrats, Rich! You're right...BIG target on you now. Now don't spend all year working on next year's pattern before you let the rest of us know what the contest is.

 

Thanks, John...nope, no name. Actually, I'm surprised that that one ranked higher than my other three. I kinda just threw that in last minute.
