Per Juro`s Advice

Allways seeking advice from the Pros, I showed Juro one of my, what I thought were perfect, peanuts. He said, That sure is nice, if it just had a little gold in it it would be perfect. You ask and Slinger delivers, introducing the new, updated, allmost perfected, DNA peanut. Still 100% DNA Holofusion it now has 6 colors blended into it. Starting with 3 layers of Polar on the bottom, fadeing to pastel Pink, witha layer of Lavender over that and then a thin viel of Neon Gold spread over the sides, finally topped with Smoke and a red throat. I don`t think I can get it any closer to the real thing, watch, some wise guy will say it dosen`t have a black spot! For referance, it`s on a 4/0 Gammi hook. Here it is.

Slinger,

After holding one in the hand I have to say that I agree the pic does not do the fly justice; the profile of the fly is very realistic from the head-on angle and the coating at the head and choice of materials prevents it from collapsing when fished even in currents or fast strips while the back 2/3 is plenty soft and wiggly.

The other thing that struck me about it is that it's one of those universal patterns that will catch any non-vegetarian fish that swims given the right proportions for the fish's appetite with the most obvious one being hardtails!

It would be an excellent fly for pacific coho or to imitate YOY atlantic herring with a purple highlight, and the ever popular chartreuse will make it an all-purpose all fish kind of pattern.

I forgot to ask you what you coated the head with to get that form?

You should see some of the other creations Slinger had in his little tin fly box. Slinger is the DNA guru. FishHawk

Oh, that explains the reason for all the empty pegs at the booths at the Malboro show. These were the pegs that held the gold and the olive DNA that Slinger promptly purchased between 9 and 9:05 AM Slinger packed so much DNA into his SUV that he had to increase the tire pressure to get home to Rhody

I also heard the one of our sponsors T&T is going to offer a Double Helix Model as a Slinger signature series rod for next falls peanut run

Great Fly Steve, I'll take a bakers doz. to fish when I get there hopefully next June!
BUT! do watch out, with all that DNA in your hands, one never knows what kind of genetic mutations may occur!

Pete, no peanuts around in June, but I`m sure I`ll have somthing that will intrest you!
John, for what one of those fancy high end rods cost I could buy an arsenal of my favorite TFO`s. They`re attracting a lot of attention with thier new lines, including a Teeny series that one crotchity old Basser said cast like a dream!

John, I heard that Slinger is travelling to the Novartis labs in Cambridge to work on synthetic Fish DNA Formula that is cureable with an UV light of course. The AG does not have jurisdiction in the Peoples Republic.
