My best damsel to date . There should be enough buoyancy here to keep it on the surface.

Destroyed this one in the attempt, goin for scrap but like how the two tone poly yarn worked for the wings and tail tip for buoyancy. For a big fly its practically light as air so should float well. Gonna keep goin til I get it right since seeing the fly fishing video"Damsels in Distress" Think I'll watch it again.

In the video I referred to browns were smashing them hard. Yes the blue is a pretty good match to one of them I see every season. Even the crystal flash matches the shimmer they seem to exhibit.
