Pete, That looks like a sili skin application.... Did you trim it so the ends appear like the sili skin? Do you cut it down prior to it setting? I have too many questions..I will have to call you.

SillyAcrylic...!

Phresh off the barbie...
Mustad Shrimp Hook...eyez (beads on mono)...Antenna (super hair)...Legs (palmered hackle...trimmed on the back)...Tuffleye acrylic to build up the body...SillySkin carapice (cut and placed and attached with "segmented mono thread wraps)...Acrylic to further build up the carapice...
Sinks slowly with hook up and has nice drowning pool presence...
I suspect some foam under the silly skin, instead of the acrylic, would slow the sink and induce a hook point down appearance...
After subjecting it to the "drowning pool"...I'd have to say, this may be my new favourite appetizer...Pending a "striped phocus group" approval!

Anyone try the Loon UV light on this stuff.?

I saw a UV light by Loon that is used on their Knot sense product and wondered if it would work on Tuffleye stuff? The UV flashlight is only $10.
Great work Pete. FishHawk
