One of the things I like about WinonaFlyFactory is that Justin is exploring and presenting his findings and in the process he comes up with his own creations. In doing so, he often makes you think beyond the standard. Tim at Planet Trout does much the same. I recognize this in SE Euro sites as well. It makes me consider how often we regurgitate the formula, because much of it works, but we can look past the innovations born from reinventing the wheel…

 A little experimentation, a Mustad hook (discontinued), a little visualization. I like the scraggily, impressionistic tie. I am all about impressionistic.
