R.A.T. Speckles
« on: June 10, 11:56AM »
This is a pattern I really enjoyed tying. Hope you enjoy watching my abilities to tie it progress as I try a few variations of it from time to time. Still have a way to go to get a nice clean look but persistent I am. I call this one "RAT in the coal clinkers". Why not?

Lab RAT. Should have gone with a silver tinsel rib here. Wish I would have had a pink tinsel and pink thread this would have fit the name.

The Mustad signature is a nice hook, heavy , sharp as heck and relatively inexpensive but looking forward to tying on a curved shank salmon hook. They seem to add a nice look to a pattern that I've seen.
