Great Fly... and I see that you are "shingling "the feathers, which is exactly at same concept as I had done several years ago with the Feather brain flies. I called it glueing the feathers. I did cover the head with epoxy and did not use the latest bonding material.. I did use a spreader corsair base.. Back in 2003 I think, the fly was picked up by Scott Leon, The editor of FFSW, though a friend, Jay Horton, who published it in the "Tyers bench" in "Fly Fishing In Salt Waters" magazine. Bob Popovics was a big supporter and both Leon and him were looking at it from the concept of glueing feathers to the shank to do away with the "beak" like look in tying the feathers in,of all other bait fish flies...It also gave a more realistic body from below and above views....The spreader was used depending on the fly size...The concept has been later picked up in certain bonefish flies.......Great Job, as usual, Pete.
