Der Schmetterling....

...which for those not up on German, The Butterfly.
This is the first thought came into my mind when I finished this fly. It is tied on a speciality hook I recently bought from Ronn Lucas. A single piece of wire with two bends and points, one at each end. Obviously, not a hook for fishing, but an interesting canvas for tying on. As you can see, the it is a big 'hook', the bends at 6/0, with the Brittania shape. I've tied on smaller Brittania's in the past, and like the bend.
