Bat Girl Quill Body CDC Soft Hackle Nymph

Bat Girl Quill Body CDC Soft Hackle Nymph

My friend Holly Finn thought we should name this pattern Bat Girl, and I thought that was a cool name. Superheroes like to fish to right? Blue is the new black, and we've experienced a ton of success with the metallic blue bead over the last several years. Blue has also been an effective color for us. This pattern uses a synthetic quill that is clear and takes on the color of the thread used underneath. That makes the possibilities endless, and believe me when I say explore those possibilities because this pattern will work in all kinds of different colors. Please share with us the color combos you come up with.
