Now that’s creative fly tying! Want to try it just because it gives me a reason to buy a leprechaun hat and beard.

I will have to try one of those. Do you know if J. Stockard or Caddis Fly Shop carries the Lucky Leprechaun Drinking Hat? Maybe BigY Fly or Cabela's? Or could you substitute beard fibers from a Gnarly Gnome Beer Drinking Hat? :applause :applause
