I used craft foam on them. On the 1 I put silly skin over the foam which was a pain after the body was formed. A bitch to trim because it is so stretchy as you can see in the pix. But not all that bad for it being my first, live and learn. I'm going to try doing a crab fly during this storm to pass the time.

Nothing to do on this rainy day leading up to Irene hitting us. So I tried another pattern to tie. We got him with this one Eddie. It is suppose to be a baby crab if you can tell by my tying lol!

I need to tie up a few more cause I found it pretty hard to keep the veins of the feathers centered on the body. Like a fish will ever give a damn lol! When they hit the epoxy to hold them in place on the flies back they don't want to cooperate. It makes it look like the body isn't centered on the hook, which it is. But it's how it acts in the water that counts.
