Action "Ultimate Silversides"

Hola gang,

Well, can't keep from playing around with this pattern. That's why I haven't posted the recipe yet. What I can tell you is that the materials list consists of pearl and silver small mylar tubing...5 min devcon epoxy...a Mustad 4007 hook...sick-on 3D prismatic eyes...permanent marker...a paperclip?...3/O mono thread and last but not least...metalic duct-tape (thats what the head/gills/stomach sack are represented by.

This new version I call the "Action" USS because the entire fly is not coated in epoxy...just the head and body cavity...the mylar tubing from ribcage to tail tips is left au-naturale! Now the front end of the fly has the "Look" and the back end of the fly has the "waggle". This version is also alot lighter than the one I showed you yesterday (I'll still tie that one for toothy critters). I gave up on simulating a realistic tail as it's just a pain in the a__ to make and I doubt the fish care.

Right now, I just wish I was someplace warm where I could give it a try on some finned judges.

Talk soon folks and tight loops!
Henry Will Catching bones is great...but the real fun and excitement for me is the "Game" and just being there.
