Hello all,

I went to the Saltwateredge tying expo today and finally tied a fly using silicone, like Steve Farrar does. I never tied a Mackeral before, so I gave it a shot.
Hook: 254 Eagle claw 3/0
Tail: Two apple green saddle hackles feed through a piece of EZ body to prevent fouling--the EZ body is 1/8" cord with a green top and white bottom.
Body: Top Peacock Herl, Bottom White Fish Hair, Front of body: top- green mega mushy fiber, bottom- pearl angel hair and pink mirage over angel hair.
Eye: #3 prism
Silicone over front portion of body.

I think it measures in at about 6.5" Whatcha think?
