+1 with Retro ... that's a great looking mouse, Cheech. Are the eyes regular plastic bead chain, or something different? They look real.

Dan is right. It's a three part process with markers and UV resin. You mark the spot with marker, saturate the spot with very thin resin to create a base, then dab a glob of thick resin on the base and cure it before it loses it's "ball" shape. We have a video on how to make them on a sculpin pattern that I tie.

That's pricey. I am going to wait for the results of the "Mouse Foot Shootout" before I slap down that kind of dough. Wanna make sure I get the best type out there. ;)

Cream and Crackle: excellent Spun Hair! Brilliant! :

Eide: Once again you show me something to strive for.. BTW what hooks do you use for the double hook salmon flys?

Some Kamasan B280s, Ken Sawada and Mustad DL71

 

I like that yarn, Eide. Makes nice looking bugs. Your skill might have something to do with it, but in this case ... that yarn would even make a novice's flies look good.

Yes, the yarn just pops out, just add too hook :)

Thanks, Retrocarp, and I'm still really liking that vise. I have been primarily using the standard head in it, even for some streamers, though I plan on tying a few more tube flies over the next couple weeks.

Honored to have been asked to try new products from Pat Cohen before they hit the shelves. The tail on this guy is a new shape he is offering soon. I tied it to mimic a dying or severely injured shad laying flat on top of the water. I see the real thing everytime im on the water. I bet it will work quite nicely.
