    cutthroat spiderfish - experiment

    I was inspired by Thomas Mitchell's Cutthroat Spiderfish and just started playing around. Being very new to fly tying (this is my 4th fly) this is just an odd mix of things I've seen, and materials at hand.

    I'm new enough I don't know the name of several of the materials I used,

    Alec Jackson #7 Hook
    0/6 Black Thread
    Tag and Tip - flat Gold Tinsel
    Tail - ? feather was orange with black spots
    Body - Black/Green Metallic woven yarn (I don't yet know how to dub peacock)
    Collar - Partridge ?
    Upper Wing - Peacock herl
    Lower Wing - I also added a little bit of feather under the front of the fly

    It is i very messy, and out of proportion - but a guy has to start somewhere.

    Do you think and SRC would hit this?
