    Would love to know how you tied it though, something of a master piece that, well done!

    Thanks Rob, the biggest headache I had was sourcing the materials, especially round dense foam for the body. I eventually bought a permatube ( as used in kids MBX tyres, cut sections then reamed out a dowel with a piece of hollow tubing in my drill. The wings are made out of the film used to darken car windows.
    For tying instructions Google " Electric Cricket ". If I can remeber it's on the Flytyers on line site.
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    13 Flies must have taken an age! I appreciate the effort though, really looks good! I'm googling it as we speak...type...whatever!
    Thanx again
