My love of inexpensive grub patterns
#1
Jim's recent foray into early classic shrimp/prawn patterns got me thinking about how much cost played a part in my tying  It's tough to argue when quality work is rewarded with excellent results streamside, especially at half the cost.  Here's a slightly more complicated modern grub dressing that certainly is not a classic and is questionably creative.  I bet it might rank among top consideration in many situations.

Wonderful use of materials, great tie and without a doubt effective not only on salmon...but I know a local smallmouth stream where that would be deadly :-)

I like the idea of the peacock on the inside.

The peacock does look great on the inside. Kind of makes me think that the old masters grub patterns have evolved into modern day intruders. Both effective.
