Invader Zim (really just an over complicated feather game changer)

It's been a long time since my last post, however ive done anything but stop tying. Between tying commercially, working in the shop, and attempting to catch fish I occasionally get time to tie funky flies. I've been tying a fly for a little while now that is predominantly for peacock bass, musky and pike, but living in Missoula Montana we only have one of those and it is mediocre fishing at best. What we do have is great trout fishing, and with high water upon us, it was time to adapt the the Zim for these carp-in-a-clown-suit fish.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Welcome back, J.Z.

I like the fly ... but what is that head made of?

It is a combination of loon thick uv glue, three layers of foam sculpted into a dome, chockletts body tubing, and some pretty gold eyes.

I could do a step by step for one of the big ones like the one attached. The smaller ones are a bit more challenging.
