    As big as you like. Big enough to throw with a spinning rod if that is what you are thinking.

    How big do you want yours ?

    That is one cool looking fly. I have slowly started a transition over the past year or two to throwing more streamers and getting away from my nymphing comfort zone. That "Rusty" fly looks like it has attractive colors and probably a lot of movement to it in the water. Do you ever tie articulated flies? I have been getting many of them recently from Kelly Galloup's line of streamers.

    Your Rusty HH in an articulated version would probably be killer.

    Keep it up!

    Yes as a matter a fact I do ! But they really take a long time. If I ever get caught up on my list of HH's to tie for my Fishin.com brothers??? I will tie you an articulated Rusty ! ( Might take a while, But I will get to it )

    Thanks for the good comments and overall support !
