I came up with final design I could defiantly live with.

Thanks for all the input while still hashing this thing out. I like what it ended up being.

You need to give it a custom name.:think:

Yes it needs a name, any suggestions.....


** I was thinking....... Well since they are kinda evil yet sleek looking; maybe the black bead heads are "Lord Vaders" and the gold The Emperor" and when I add red butts.. well. the "Sith Lord". I really wanted to do the tut to the Imperial Death march theme, but the wife said I was being too stupid, go figure...**

Better Ideas.. I'm all ears.

Couple question - what made you decide to tie the shell back in after dubbing the body, instead of tying the shell back in and winding the dubbing over it?

Also - are you using black braiding line?

Awesome fly - I've got to give this one a whirl!

I dubbed up to match the 4mm bead then placed the shelback, then added an additional 2mm of dubbing to match the 6mm bead. When I tied in the shell back to the hook shank it tended to "gather" the material more so than when spread out over the 4mm body mass.

I didn't have any black braid, I used a shaprie to darken them up (not pictured)

Hope this helps

Sweet, thanks. I figured there had to a be a reason for the way you did it - I just wanted to be sure. Makes sense spreading the body more lengthwise, than bunching it up.
