Deep Eel-old & new

Here are two deep eels I tyed...the one on the top is the way I did them last year and this winter....done in layers of unique hair, flash first then white...flip over and put in sparce lavender , then Chartruese, then aqua green, then forest green, then Olive. The one below is the same colors with the addition of grey but all blended in like the flatwing bucktail, the blending is by putting all the fibers between your fingers and pulling small stands out and placing them back...back and forth... this really also creates a perfect point at the back and a nice blended color... Juro does it this way I think... I used to like layering and those flys still work well..but the subtle colors and point is an improvement to this standard fly for me.
