I have been tying today and figured I would share. I picked up a few materials from over seas to try out. I am really happy with them.

Here is a few dry.

Pretty cool, eh? Photo's are not the best I apologize. The translucency is really nice and gives you endless opportunities.

Now this one I call the Stocky Killer

Here it is under a UV light in the water. I mean obviously this is how trout would see it. UV light FTW!

As you can see the dubbing really holds some bubbles. I moved them around and popped the really big air bubbles they trapped, so I could take the picture.

Anyway, I figured I would share. If you are interested in the materials, shoot me a PM. I would be happy to share.

You need to do use different hooks and the color of the beadheads are all wrong. No, they are nice ties in all seriousness. I have had some good days fishing patterns very similar to those.

This is correct! However, for bonus points. What is the dubbing? It is mixed with cdc for the air bubble capabilities.

Man cdc was the easy one, ha. If I had to guess I'd say antron but it's tough to see. Nice ties.
