My humble opinion is that fly will get eaten a lot. Very nice.

Thanks for this Peewee! I need to tie my Dr.Death like this....though I will probably replace the gold rib with a little red estaz (maybe even add a couple wraps of thin lead under it) and epoxy over the eyes like usual. Did you use a regular streamer hook on that??
I normally use the B10S but I think its too hard to bend...they might snap? Maybe I could go back to using the Mustad 3366 and bend them.....anyway...lots of good stuff with that yeller bug too!! :D

I should have used small red cactus chenile...but I was too lazy to dig for it....anyway, If I get the chance, I'm gonna throw these at some swamp bass this weekend. :D

Looks like a good urn to me.

Try some big dumbell eyes ifn you want to go deep...
