can you glue those paper JC nails to mine? Those are like the clip-on tie of the fly tying world...
Good call. If I tie them in just right you get a really nice spin which works great with the rubber legs. Maybe I should add a blade too.

You guys all fish with tippet swivels right?

Plus maybe a bead in front of the stinger hook.
i put a bead in front of the hook on all my flies, then i throw away the fly part and flush bobs.

Im leaning towards my current hot fly. 1/8 ounce jig head with pink wiggle tail, i'll palmer a hackle round it so you can fish the fly water. It's killing the shad right now, steelhead are dumb they'll eat it for sure.

Guaranteed 2nd place behind steamin's bead fly.
