Looks great! Cannot go wrong with IBD’s.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Great proportions; perfect hackle. And that fuzzy body--my oh my! Fish magnet.

Nightwatchman,
Absolutely stunning looking IBD! This if the way I want mine to turn out but they hardly ever do! Magnificent tying my friend! You need to do a clinic on these bad boys and many others that you have done in the past!
I'm so impressed,
Doug

Nicely done - send a dozen my way 🤣

Great early season pattern in my neck of the woods…
Soft and wet - the only way....
