No name yet. It's going to be greyish white and have a fish skull. That's about what I know so far haha. Waiting for materials still.

After a lot of reading and some experimentation I ended up deciding to tie a cross between two of my favorites, the slumpbuster and the sculpzilla. I don't have a name for it. Frankenzilla?

 

How are things going. Does anyone have names for there flies yet?

The monsters have entered the mail! It took a little longer than I planned but the package went out yesterday! I left it as a 2 hook pattern. If I wanted to do a single hook I would tie it with the size 14 hook in front. The connection is made with fire line.

 

Hooks: 12/14 2xl nymph hook

Thread: (in back 6/0 olive) Finish 6/0 Black

Tail: Olive Marabou and Olive crystal flash

Bodies: 5 strands of peacock with 3 strands of olive crystal flash twisted into a rope.

Hackle at the end of the 2nd body and at the front of the first: Pheasant windowpane feathers palmered.

 

I can see several lakes here and over the border where this pattern could be great at sundown!! or later!!

Thanks for hosting:

All done and ready for an address. They're a little different than the one I posted earlier but after some R & D I've decided I like the way these fish better. I'm calling it the Laser Peanut.
