Glad you like them!
Very easy, basically this pattern on a tube with a cone head instead of a tungsten bead. If I could have found a tungsten bead to fit the tube, I might have used it, but since the tube weighs less than a hook, it should ride / jig fine.
Hook: 5263BL Size 8 2XL
Bead: Black Tungsten 5/32
Tail: Rabbit Strip the Length of the hook shank
Body: Rabbit dubbing brush, change density of brush for more or less buoyancy
I used HMH tubing, small, and the corresponding junction tubing and a size 6 straight eye tube fly hook. I fished a black one today and it looked great in the water!!
The trick is the dubbing brush, since you remove the hide from the rabbit or whatever fur you choose to use.
I'll take a pic of the black one, unless you want to post a pic of the ones I sent in.
you should have mine by now
I put mine in the mail today they should be there in a few, I apologize for the tardiness I am afraid I let the deadline sneak up on me.
Here are the pattern recipes I used.
I am looking forward to seeing everyones flies.
whats up all... can we get an update. im heading back east on the 21st would love to egt these flies before i get back. wondering if everyones flies have been recieved. Not that it matters i run the bead the majority of the time. maybe a glo bug. rarely anything else. except maybe a balck stonefly. haha anything i can do to speed this up?
Cool Made it this time.
deep breath relax..i just recieved x dogs..
i have yet to recieve zach m......you said you were making a shrimp version??
maybe you should double check cuz i deffinitly sent them out a long time ago. but whatever if they arent there leave me out cuz if they didnt come yet then UPS probably lost them or something. i tied a white mysis shrimp pattern on a size 8 hook
