These things work great.

My kid picked some out at the Speckled Trout in Springerville back in July and it was the best pick he has made yet.

Can anyone loan me three purple hackle ???

I run across this old post on the Purple Luigi and wanted to work up a couple just for kicks. I don't have any hackle in purple.

I did go down to Pinetop Sporting looking for some purple stuff and happened to meet the dude who invented the purple luigi. He hangs there and he said that he invented 38 different fly patterns, most are for sale in the shop. Interesting guy.
