LOL!!! I saw that title and knew you had tied a red, white and blue fly. It's about time you post some pictures of those flies in a big fish's mouth grin

Really awesome work Rex thumb

Thanks for comments, I'm having fun tying this style of fly. But, there are better patterns for catching fish, especially around here.

I've tried fishing some of these flies, and they're not very good bass flies. They are cool to watch in the water. They sink nice and level, the hook stays horizontal. But, they also sink very slowly since they are not weighted. 90% of my time is spent fishing still water situations and a cone head, bead head, or lead eye fly will trigger more bass strikes than these flies.
