Trying Something New

Hello,

I realize that there isn't much new in the world of Saltwater Fly Tying, but.. what do you think of this? Its hard to get a good digital picture without the colors getting messed up, but you should be able to get the general idea..



The intention of the reflective tape is to mimic the shiny, opaque belly of a silversides and other similar baitfish. Its hard to tell from the picture but the fly is all Kinky Fiber: white, pink and tan, with some Mirage and Sparkle Flash layered in.

What do you think?

I will modify the proportions slightly in my next attempt, making the fly a little longer and slightly more streamlined. I also left too much room for the head, so it looks a little awkward.
