    Thats very smart. It is very much in the spirit of the comp, it would be boring if they were all the same. A bit of creativity should be encouraged

    Now I know why the Ally Shrimp is more commonly tied as itís not easy getting all those tying in points and double wings onto a size 10 Patriot! Still, in for a penny - in for a pound and so hereís my humble offering. Personalised with a couple of strands of gold crystal flash and plastic damsel fly eyes.

    This is great but i really loved your simple GP on the other thread - it was screaming to be fished.

    Hope it complies with the rules as Iím not sure what some of the terms are ... tippet ? For example!
    Tail is orange bucktail and cashmere goat with some flash and wild boar.
    Eyes , orange dubbing ,copper rib , orange hen hackle and golden pheasant tipper and breast wing.
    Been a fun one as Iíve never tied any thing similar so learned a bit.

    Youíve sort of captured much of the reason for taking part in competitions in that it makes you tie with materials and in styles that otherwise you might miss. In doing so it really speeds up the rate of improvement.

    For info, the tippet is the barred feather from the pheasant neck. In this case orange with black stripes from golden pheasant. You also get tippet from Amherst pheasant as a fairly common feather.

    You still can enter it, just switch the photo. GK mentioned in last months comp that you can switch photos as much as you want during the month. The one that is on when he compiles the photos at the the end of the month is the one he uses for your entry.
    Personally I like the one you have on here already
