    Yes, Hot Orange and Optic White, there is some flash tucked in between the two colors.

    Bonnet-buster. I could tie some bone-sized, but they'd probably choke on that one. #2, roughly the size of a quarter.

      It's been so long since I've seen those tied properly that I didn't recognize the pattern, lol. Nice work!

    Very nice work on that old pattern... Along with them you might want to cobble up a few more - without eyes or head ("blind bitters"), so that they land quietly as possible for really shallow, spooky fish that shy away from regular bitters.  Bitters work some days - then not on others,  strictly depending on the fish and how nervous they are that day...

    Bob I tied some with bead chain and I made another batch with plastic eyes like you'd use on a tarpon toad. Even tied a couple bigger #4s incase the permit like them too. 

    ODC idk if I tied the properly yet. I guess I will find out come August when the bones either eat them up or give me the cold shoulder
