Real Eel (bronze over smoke)

I wanted to share the color combo that's worked very well for me during my few trips to the Cape this season. The smoke belly is a blend of smoke with a few strands of opaque white ultra hair. The bronze top is tan hair blended with a few strands of brown, and with a chartruese highlight in the middle. The flash material is rusty olive angel hair, placed between the top and bottom halves and on top. The hook is a size 2, and overall fly length is about 3.5".

The fly on top is a bit full, the one on bottom more sparse. So far they seem to perform about the same, but my experience with them is limited so far. I hope to change that in due time.

Great design Juro!
