    Indeed juicy, and crunchy. Did you eat one for inspiration too, always good to sample the source.

    Looks great eric. How did you obtain a flat profile on the underside of the abdomen?

    that looks like it should be able to turn into some sort of fighting robot from the cartoon network... unless it gets swallowed by a huge trout first. seriously though, thats one sharp looking fly!

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I obtained the flat profile by applying tension on the bottom side and then letting off on the top.
