Cartoon Character

I also wanted to cast the flyrod to prevent the onset of rust, so I put away the spinning gear and setup the Helios/Hatch 8 wt. Here's the fly I used. Sometimes the result of tying up a fly makes you wonder... This one looked like a big bird chick after it just hatched out. Well - the local barracuda like to eat big birds - I had cast this fly out and was stripping it in pretty quickly. I saw a barracuda hit it (big splashes and a mouth out of the water), had it hooked for a second and 'ping' it was able to cut itself off. I guess I should tie up more flies to resemble cartoon characters...
