A few Longer Sandeels

Post  Charlie G. on 11/28/2013, 3:11 pm

I tied these 3 sandeels up last night. 7in to 8in. I'm hoping there won't be a fouling factor with such long eels.
All three are wrapped with lead wire for weight to get down in the water column.
And the tails are tied with cashmere goat over 3 olive hackles, over white polar pony.





Happy and Safe Holiday to all

Yeah, they look good to me..
Would taking the epoxy on further down the fly, past the hook bend, help with preventing wrap-around fouling (?)?

I trust they are your own, home-dyed, olive hackles you have used here, Charlie..

Thanks guys
Jim it would help with fouling but hinder the most tail action which can be had. I'm going to try it this way first, I can always go back and add CCG further back on the tail.
Oh and it's not epoxy it's UV cured acrylic, (clear cure goo) I haven't used epoxy in over a year. All UV acrylic anymore
