Yep, knocked out a few. That technique for legs is sexy. I'm gonna tie a dozen or so of these, just for grins.

Excellent video, I hadn't seen that one before. I'll definitely try out that pattern.

Thanks for sharing thumb

Here is one on a #6 Mustad 3261. Not enough gap on the #10 dry fly hooks. I'm working on getting a nice, round tail. So far, it eludes me.

you did a good job with it. I just ordered 400 hooks of various sizes. I'll have to check and see if one if them will work. I think the only one I have that might come close to working is an Allen S402BL. I have it in a size 10, but I'm not sure what the foam will do to the hook gap.

I bought those hooks specifically to ty Curtis Fry's La Bomba fly.. Have you seen that fly by chance?

Looking for it now...
Yeah, I've tied beautiful foam flies that got beat to He11 with no hook ups because I failed to consider the gap.

Yes indeed, that La Bomba ought to be a potent dropper.

That awkward moment when you realize that you have not watched the video enough times, the flies look somehow wrong smile
I've got it sorted out now. All that remains is to find or invent a technique for cutting smooth, round ends.

Here's my version. Thanks for sharing. I didn't have tan, so I substituted white foam. I may have tied it a bit skinny.
