Ah right boys and girls, animal crackers.  Floating Game Changer.    Styrofoam balls Solarez on the shanks.   Hackle then ball on each shank.   Gotta see how it looks in da water.

That's an interesting take, denduke.   Beats the hell out of trying to put the Predator wrap on a shank and then trimming it.  It will work.  I could see doing that in black/olive for an eel pattern or a leech pattern.

Problem is Philly it just pulls straight across the surface.  Put it in rain barrel.   If you twitch it it’ll kinda squirm but needs sumthin.   Not on a rod yet. Might walk the dog with lil twitches.  That would be nice.  Maybe if the tail was weighted some might create a wiggle or maybe one of your diving lips on the front ball.   Was thinking of doing one with foam sheet crease fly style but it’s prolly just gonna lay over flat and just track straight too.   Prolly do a feathered one next.   

Need to learn Wally Wings and or Origami wings for my mayflies too.

Wally Wings and/or Origami wings are a waste of time.  They're a pain to make.  They make the fly harder to cast and I don't think they catch more trout.  I just fish generic flies that may resemble a mayfly.

 

 I  tie my crease flies so they ride straight up rather than on their sides.   I place the hook higher in the body and when I glue the body together I use a clamp to compress the foam in the belly portion which basically creates a keel that allows the fly to sit straight up and not on it's side.   If you look hard enough you should be able to see it in the picture.

Thanks work in progress.....  the mayflies are sideline/ just wanted to try it.   Very rare I’ll try a Humpy,Midge, Caddis mostly only dry stuff is hopper/dropper for trout.  

When I was making the hollow foams I had to address that float issue.  Trying to get the GC floater to snake like the wet version is the problem I’m creating.
