Does anyone know where I can buy flies like this? Or can anyone point me to a pattern to tie them myself?


It looks a lot like a popper, but the head was weighted and sunk a little bit.

Interesting looking fly.

I seem to recall seeing it discussed lately but can't remember where.  You might go to the database and search by tags like epoxy, etc.... maybe you'll come across something like it.  You can also search "epoxy flies", etc., on Google Images.  It's a fishing trip :-)   but I have found things that way.
