Thanks, I forgot to say to cut the mono to form a taper for the belly (long to short). You can also use a little color on the inside to create a look of a stomach.
I've seen patterns simular to this in pictures using flex tubing to form the shape of the fly. I liked the look but wanted someting a little more durrable, so I came up with this idea. I'm sure it's been done in the past, but I just like the way the mono thread and body material seem to disapear with the application of epoxy.

We who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.
