Dyneema tying thread

Right now I am at the cottage by the sea  busy writing the  new book on ‘Patterns for salt water sea trout’ Heres one of the Hoodlum images.  All 50 patterns in the book will be presented like this with full stage by stage tying instructions. The book is due for publication in March next year.
