Nicely done Dennis. I actually learned a few things last night, including why bother tying size 24. :D

RB great pictures.

 

As I said this was just a fun night and hoped that it would make doing humpies much easier.

 

For the Christmas leech I'm hoping it will be a killer out at Muir & Dolberg next fishing season. Maybe even a Brother to the Impoved Llama Leech on Grayling.

 

See All Next week

Size 24 humpy's... That is crazy.

 

Nice ties Dennis.

 

I have a bunch of small hooks sitting here, but I'm not sure they will ever see thread...
