    Ribbing material is clear larva lace, underbody is pink diamond braid. Yes...small bead chain eyes on the back, Real Eyes on the front. Brown artic fox, rootbeer crystal flash. Head is built up with a UV finish. Size #8 saltwater hook.

    They're supposedly very good producers in Belize and hope they are equally accepted in Hawaii.
