This is another experiment. These are "trout sized", about 1 1/2 inch body length.

Same trout experiment. Different body coloration.
For more.... let your imagination go wild and try out every single permanent marker you can find...

Very neat....I can also picture smallies and hickory shad taking a whack at these.

Looks like balsa with epoxy covering it.

Have you guys ever heard of a crease fly? It's a pattern developed for saltwater made from sheet foam folded on itself and then coated with epoxy. Colors are added to the foam prior to the epoxy step.

I think Pete's calling these flies experimental because they weren't origianlly intended for trout.

Its made using a roughly heart shaped foam body that is wrapped around the hook and super glued in place.

Is it a fly? The British would call it a lure because it imitateds a dying bait fish. But I'd call it a fly. If there were a couple of appropriately positioned legs added it would have a pretty good hopper profile. and be nearly impossible to sink.

Brad, whats happening in your region for fishing ? I'm headed out there in a couple of weeks for business and wondering...

John, when are you coming? You are looking at one of the prime times of the year. PM me, I have a couple of trips planned in March and we should be able to hook up this time.
