Playing with UV resin.
They'll get bit... Here's a homegrown clouser that we use a bunch in the interior of the brackish Everglades out of Flamingo and Chokoloskee... Tied up on a Mustad #34007 2/0 - note the wire weedguard... Here's the Whitewater Clouser.Thread is Danville's flat waxed nylon, fl. green, and this bug is tied up the way Lefty Kreh suggested all those years ago with all of the wing on one side of the hook... My anglers have taken everything that swims with this pattern - except tarpon... In forty years of tossing flies at fish - never the first tarpon on a clouser - don't ask me why. Fortunately, we've got plenty of stuff they will eat.... The eyes are large beadchain (the exact same size the pull cord on vertical blinds come with...). The body, what there is of it is just two layers of flat waxed nylon in fl. fire orange and the first step is to tie the eyes in place then extend that orange thread back onto the shank about 1/2 inch... then whip finish tying off, then turning the hook in the vise so that it rides up and you can add weedguard and wing...
