I must have missed this post!
I tied these pretty much the way Bob Popovics describes in his book Pop Flyes. I recomend this book to everyone.
Ultra hair in white, blue and grey. A little pearlescent flashabou all tied on a Gamagatsu SC15 hook with mono thread. Two coats of 5min. epoxy with the prismatic eyes and gills(drawn with red marker) added between coats.
This is a pretty easy pattern to tie, and my only insight is that it takes some practice to be comfortable with the epoxy.
I chose these colors to match the herring that pull the stripers into the Piscataqua river in the spring(I can't wait).
Thanks John for pulling this all together. Really outstanding. Eddie
