Norm it looks like you didn't use Solarez on that fly's head - If I'm correct is there a reason?

Norm,

Are my eyes getting old or are the fox squirrels in your area getting a little gray?

@Sandan

Very nice all the way around.  I like that Utc Wood duck.   Midge jaws look pretty awesome. How do you like them ?

@Moshup Thanks. The Wood duck was what I thought would be the closest to silk. Gonna have to scrounge some up.  I really like the midge jaws. I pretty much use them for 18's and smaller.  They allow me more access to the back/bend of the hook which I find advantageous. I'd recommend 'em. I have an old set that's only slightly worn out but still usable if you want to give 'em a try. Edit: I tied those spiders before seeing your P&O. Nice tie. Great minds, eh?

@DFoster my Solarez bone dry uv resin is a little wonky so i decided not to use it. need a new bottle

@WWKimba trust me! i know its a fox squirrel tail. the color probably gets washed out by the lighting and background color

@Sandan. Another nice one.  Thanks for the generous offer but I have a pair that I bring out for photo opportunities. Lol.

I was just telling Pbass that I had an old set of the regular jaws that I just sent off to a friend who used his barracuda over 

the years to rig saltwater plugs.  He did a number on those jaws !  I should post a picture as I don’t think he ‘s a member here.

Hopefully ! 🙄

@Moshup Thank you. Well if you want to have a"working" set let me know.  I'd like to see those salty jaws.
