Nice wraps! If that fly is anything like Big T's Ossabaw Hogger Variation...it should float even with all your girdle bugs below it.

I need to tie some of those up. I used the orange New Zealand Strike indicator wool dubbed on the body on one I tied (after you showed me the one you were catching fish on). Man those things will float a tank.

Sweet looking tie by the way looks perfect.
