Not to sound like I'm criticizing you too much....but two things...

1) I thought you were gonna show me some nasty topwater stuff......these are all sinkers :?

2) the eyes on that last fly are backwards dumbass....the fat part of the tear drop should be facing forward.....look it up in the book :twisted:


:lol: :lol: just kiddin (well...not really) nice flies Boss man .....Talked to C&R :D

No good topwaters yet atleast none that are worth posting

Look at a baitfish the narrow part of the eye faces forward!

I should also note that none of them are weighted so on a floating line they fish the top foot of the column

The 3rd and 4th fly use Ep anadromus brushes for the head. You tie it in and wrap it forward sweepin the fibers backwards as you go. If you tie it off and leave it as is it will have a nice slender baitfish look. You can also pick or brush it out and it will produce a fuller profile like the two flies pictured. It's pretty dense stuff and keeps a great shape in the water. Pretty price stuff though. Been making a few of my own out of ep fibers and angel hair to keep cost down

Shows how much I know...I woulda sworn the fourth was bucktail :?

I like how the third one turned out...like the subtle flash in it....which is why I thought the slinky fiber......some big silver jurassic eyes woulda looked good on the side...but then you would'nt have had that fat head to push water. HMMMM :ugeek:
