Those look great. Looks like you are using some of the Fly Tyer's Dungeon Sand Crab dubbing. Great stuff at a great price.

I too am fan of fly tyers dungeon. I'm also very fond of the purple and chartreuse combination for redfish. I would sure like to know what you used to make the spoon flys. I've not yet got into making them. And those are surely some good lookin flys.

Hadn't seen everyone's responses not sure how I missed it. Spoons were done with stickers from Sightcast fishing and UV glue coated over on top with Sally Hansen's. The collars on the redfish crack flies were made from brush from Sightcast. Sightcast is a Texas business so I went with them. Gonna have to check out Fly Tyer's dungeon if the have salt water stuff.

Fly tyers dungeon has a product very similar to EP fibers that is much cheaper and works just a well. They have a library of tying videos using their products. Lots of salt water stuff.

Yep checked the website out yesterday. They have some pretty neat stuff. Really want to source some super fine rubber legs for a sandflea/mole crab pattern; say half to a quarter of the size of spanaflex. The mini bug legs they offer may do the trick.
