Brian,

4 inch peanut bunker imitations have been the ticket so far. Also bring some spearing & bay anchovy imitations from 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 inches in case the albies pop up.

Juro,

Thanks. Here's a quick photo of two that I toyed with. The smaller one may be what you've got in mind. Both are sili skin over flexi cord. If I could figure a way to get the siliskin...

Steve,

It's not the overlapping that caused the seam to open up, it's stretching the sili skin when applying. I don't overlap the seam simply because I apply the sili skin by draping it over the...

You may want to try that idea on a long shank bendback. Feel free to give me a call or use email on the sili skin technique. I picked up a few things from the school of hard knocks like...

John,

Make sure you've got multiple sizes of both e-z body and flexi-cord light. E-Z body for the rounder body types and the flexicord for rainfish/spearing body types. With your creativity,...

Brian,

The sili skin is applied over the material , not the e-z body for the fly in the photo. It's applied by first preparing a rectangle of sili skin as long as the e-z body and wide enough to...

Jeff,

The material is fishair. Unique hair and super hair work as well. Bucktail can be used and needs to be inside the e-z body as opposed to being tied over it.

Matt,
