    Lead wrapped behind hook eye coated with epoxy and painted with grey "hard as nails". Rides perfect with the hook down in the tub. You could tie it with a jig hook for the "full effect"...maybe even use tungston powder for the head

    Hip, I like that baby. Now you have no excuse for using that spin rod when you got a go to pinky. Now that is new for 2004. Next year look for it to be in the 2005 catalog. Did you say you needed a field tester?

    I really like the nice body taper and GREAT WORK on the spinning and trimming !

    Remember our thread on fly types and why?

    Could I ask, why the weighted head combined with the bouyant deer hair ?

    Great looking fly Keith! If I could show a buddy of mine that fly, he might just take up fly fishing. He's kinda teetering right now, and that might make him fall to the fly side.
    Frank, you're making me think too much on a Sunday morning with only a half of a cup of coffee in me.

    Hip,that fly looks deadly,but just a thought,unless using deer hair for bouyancy,how about chenille for body,you could tye an underbody first to get the full body,might be an easier tye.Vinny

    Hip Looks good to me. Can think of many situations for using that fly. Like it. [img]tongue.gif[/img] Ron

    We all agree, It looks good Hip. Now we just have to wait and see if it catches fish. The spinning of the deer hair makes it look like a slower tying process, it will be interesting to see the results.

    Cool

    Do they make pink Estaz? If they do, like Vinny said, you could use that instead of spinning deer hair. And it'll add some flash. Either way, it looks godd.

    I tied the same thing with Estaz last year...its called a shminnow

    This was kind of a novelty fly....hence the "lead head" I actually thought the lead wire would have pulled it under a bit but that spun hair is some boyant stuff! I was thinking if I could wrap the hook with tight wraps of lead or coat the hook with tungston and spin the hair over it that I could actually make a suspending fly....I would probably only have to tie 100 before i got the right amount of weight. As boyant as belly hair is it would probably weight a bit too. I am definitly going to tie some more like that and try them.....drifting into structure on a sinking line....hanging in the water column with the boyancy...who knows.

    Cool

    If you're only looking for that effect, it's probably a zillion times easier to tie up a bouyant pink siliclone and use it on a sinking line. It'll save you a lot of aggrivation .

    Sweet bro! I like that one...I tied up some sweet jiggy's and tapered them to look like a zoom, Im also going to try to cut the tails off of the zooms and some mister twisters and blend them into the fly..I wish I could post a pic of what Ive been up too, oh well, you'll see them soon enough. Thanks again for all the starter stuff man!!! I knew this would be addicting!!
