The love affair with DNA goes on. This is the pogie I`ve been at since mid summer.

This fly is on a Varivas 1/0 990s. I`ve used a spreader to get the wider profile. I like to try to capture the varied hues in the bait so it has several shades starting with polar mixed with pearl midge flash, then light pink with a bit of pink midge flash, then lilac then a smoke topping( don`t ya just love the names they come up with for these colors).

Nice Job Steve... Also, check out Steve Farrars work. I think he ties in by a back fold tie in.

Great looking flies.. is that epoxy over the head, or something else?

Do you guys prefer any the fish fiber/frosty fiber/holo-fusion over the other?

I believe that Slinger violated Chargaff's Rule with this particular tie He must use equal parts frosty and holo in the future such that the phish atrractant nature of the phley is maximized

...and that would be Dave Chargaff of Dave's Bait and Tackle down in Hingham?

I like 'em. Nice looking fly!
Any local shops carrying the Varivas 990s?

Varivas isn`t making hooks any longer and I can`t get anymore. Actually there is one place that still has them but I don`t trhink he`s a sponsor so.... I`m sure you could substitute any wide gap hook. I`ve started hoarding these hooks, having bought 200 in the last month.

Thanks for the info, Slinger.
As for Varivas not making hooks anymore...
I really prefer them for smaller flies such as epoxy style candies, etc.
