Thanks Brett. Good to hear from you. Yep - hair in in split thread loop. Plenty of variations on these patterns. I'll post a few more soon.

Also some soft-hackles for caddis pupae. Hopefully a coupld to be added to Hans W's site in the near future.

Sure send me over an email and I'll take a look.
