Erik, are you slanging that thing on your moonshine rod? Are you using streamer line? I.E. sink tip, or sinking line? I've been getting curious about streamer tossing lately....

Just an FYI... It looks as if your lead eyes are tied on top of the hook in the pictures. If that is the case your fly will ride hooks pointed up on your fly. I know your color is constant throughout your fly but when you start getting contrasting colors from belly to back you will want to know which way the fly will ride in the water as to which color you put on top.
Streamers are an addiction and you are off to a good start

Steve, I got a 6wt recently. Iíll throw smaller streamers on my 3wt with my mono rig but once they start getting bigger than a size 10/8 or are heavily weighted I donít risk it.

Yeah, I didnít really take that into consideration on that first one but I tied accordingly on the last three I whipped up.

Great job Erik!!! I did notice that those hooks seem to have some sort of pointy object coming off of them at an angle just below the hook point. Maybe a defect???
