I picked these bodies up the other day at Cabela's for the heck of it...figured I would try a few....they look good and are really easy to tie....just wondering if the fish will eat em' or wether they'd rather have rubber legs or more movement?

Looks downright tasty. I might have to pick some of those up and give them a shot.

Dan...I rarely buy things like this....but I guess I'm falling for "easy" more and more. I think I paid like $4.80 (a pack of 6) for them? which with a hook etc. your easily above a buck a fly....but I'm starting to think that its O.K. to have a few in the box. Like the fish skulls and sculpin helemts...its hard to resist something that makes a really good lookin fly with not much effort....I believe there are going to be lots of "hard hat" flies in my streamer swap entries :o

I've seen days that fly would get totally worn out. Nice buggy bug.

Tom,

That fly has merit. Have you put it in a wild (stream born fish) creek ??? I have a wild creek that is the absurd distance of 3/4 mile from my house. I ya wanna, I will field test 3 of them for you. If they work, I will buy a few more.

JT....I bought a pack of six bodies...tied the one fly and sent it and the rest of the bodies to Smokey to try......I may pick up some more when I get a chance....at the time I was'nt figuring on trout fishing for a long time....but could probably use a few on the Saluda.
