The Voodoo part is what I can't seem figure out. Better than ever though, really nice colors.

Wink PhreeStyle variations...

'Same olde phlyz... Different DAZE...
In the previous exercise I placed several CDL pheatherz over the white body to achieve a formidable contrast...
Below I welded in a Cree pheather on each side and overlayed with WHITE to subdue the contrast and insinuate a phishy profile...



The inuendo of phlash under the welded translucent pheatherz shows thru nicely... 'running lights...

Dartanyan y los Tres Mousecateers displaying variations and what happens when there is a notion trying to escape but NO set recipe...

UV curing acrylics

Great looking flies! Is the Bug Bond the same product as the other UV cured products like Loon Outdoors "UV Knot Sense" or "UV Wader Repair"? I also have a tube of Redington "Sun Set Super Patch". All these products require a UV light in the 395 to 450 nm spectrum range.

Be certain to be careful with your eyes when using UV lights . I try to wear safety glasses designated for UV protection.

Buggy insinuendo...

Just playin' around with shrimp-esque critterz...
When you can find an emptying guzzle with decapods being phlushed into the "mugging zone", the "house odds" take on a new slant...

This stuff is great, and I really enjoy tying flys with the Farrar blend. I haven't tried the blend with Tufflye though, so you've given me something to think about.

Great photography, too.

I must be not in tune with the latest development...I have the Tuffleye, but have never tried the Bug-Bond...Is this something all fly shops carry? It looks much better than the epoxy and goop I always use. I will call you Pete.

Lightbulb John... Welcome back to the PHUTURE!

I'll bet you're still using Bryllcreem...
We should "do lunch" and get you "caught up"...
here's a Bug-Bond, phlash surpressed version on a Mustad Signature Series #4 shrimp hook...

Hook sizes can be somewhat relative, arbitrary, and "close enough for government work"... Tiemco #8 on top, Mustad #4 Shrimp on bottom...

Mustad #6 Signature Series Shrimp AND... the most interesting J-Vise DamaSteel jawz in town...
