I must have missed this post!
I tied these pretty much the way Bob Popovics describes in his book Pop Flyes. I recomend this book to everyone.
Ultra hair in white, blue and grey. A little pearlescent flashabou all tied on a Gamagatsu SC15 hook with mono thread. Two coats of 5min. epoxy with the prismatic eyes and gills(drawn with red marker) added between coats.
This is a pretty easy pattern to tie, and my only insight is that it takes some practice to be comfortable with the epoxy.
I chose these colors to match the herring that pull the stripers into the Piscataqua river in the spring(I can't wait).
Thanks John for pulling this all together. Really outstanding. Eddie
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.
