    nothing wrong with that. I have tied a good few and you can make them look so real. I got a bottle of glitter and put glue on the places I wanted to "glitter" and they did'nt look half bad....to me that is

    HI Adrian,

    Very nicely done. Looks like ultra violet sparkle on the body.

    Very nice adrian

    If I may make some constructive criticism, i'd tie your crease fly on a relatively bigger hook size. By having a bigger hook gape you will increase your chances of hooking fish.

    Thanks Liam , I had the spare long shank hooks lying around and just used them to practice . i will definately use a larger hook gape when fishing crease flies

    Nice fly. What materials did you use?

    Hi Frik

    The tail is white super hair and holographic flash . The body is 3mm white foam , shaped , folded and super glued to hook . I used a black/red perm marker and mother of pearl glitter for body patterns . Standard holographic stick on eyes and then epoxied over fly for durability .

    Cheers

    Just a tip. Epoxy makes the fly very heavy. rather coat it with clear nail varnish or with softhead from loons. Its light and it last long enough. You will most probably find that that fly sinks, or spins in the water due to the uneven weight of the epoxy. Then they are just as useless as a dryfly with a wake behind it from the drag.

    otherwise they look realy good.
