kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

SA Guy, yer stealing all my ideas! I like your style!! I was gonna tie about the same thing, except those hollow eyes add floatation and are not very durable, so I use hologram eyes with epoxy over them instead. This is a lot like tying musky flies....

Anybody every try the Airhead on GT's? I just tried to make one & it came out surprisingly well for the first try, so I was considering making a bonefish version of this fly or something, what do you guys think?

Really like it Maniac,
I spend hundreds of hours a year fishing production Airheads
for stripers, they cast like a bullet, NEVER ever foul
and they catch fish as well as any fly I have ever used.

Now figure out how to get a glass rattle
up the ass end of that thing.

Looks good Maniac.

Just glue one in after it dries using CCG... Or... Do the trick where you loop some 30# around the rattle, wrap it with thread, glue it and tie it in off the back of the shank. Or tie in some rubber tubing off the back of the shank and shove a rattle in that. Just a few thoughts I think would work.

I found another nice pattern (freshwater) that I might adapt for this, not quite sure if the articulation will give problems, but it might just be great. These were tied by a saffa tier, Gerrit Viljoen.

SAG, never having fished for gt, how important is it to match the food? Do you like the yellow and red as much as the more neutral stuff? Dark vs light?
