    Very nice Koos, I really like the black one on the left, going to work for sure.
    Like CJ and Jocko suggested, I used to add a white bit of fluff (think I used wool) to the head to represent breathers. Well done.

    Nice flies, no reason they wont work. Try this....put a 2.5mm tungsten bead(any colour) onto a size 12to 16 caddis pupa hook ( the gold hannak works best for this) superglue the hook in place so it doesn't run up and down the hook shank. No dressing, nothing...simply a hook with a bead. Use it as a point fly, or as a suspender buzzer in slower water.
    Heh heh heh. try it.
    Another great variation of this "fly" is to colour the hook with nail polish and give it a coat of Sally hansens.

    For a control fly, use a size 8 hook, tungsten bead to suit the different weights you want, two beads if you like (or more) lead wrap from behind the bead to the hook bend. Cover the lead wrap with nail polish. you get red , green, blue, anything. After the nail polish, apply Sally hansens, or thin layer of epoxy.

    I'm almost ashamed to admit this in public ( mates know I do it lol) but I've been doing that for the last season or two and it works a treat - especially an orange tungsten bead, with the lead painted black or really dark purple. Definitely not comp legal

    No of course not. It's highly un proffessional, and is definatly not competition regulation...but it works. If you give it a basic peacock herl collar, the picture seems a little different...it becomes a fly.
    It is a great way to get kids and newbies into fish quickly. They don't have to contend with sink rates or anything. They go straight to the bottom, and directly into the zone....its like magic. I wouldnt advocate it as highly ethical technique, and dont use it at all anymore, but the truth is, it works and does not cause any undue harm to the fish that a legitimate fly would do anyway, so therefore i am ok with it in certain instances, but certainly not as a general technique.
