These are "revised" flies rather than newly tied ones. Years ago I came up with a streamer I really liked by modifying Bob Popovic's "Semper Fleye". I tied up a bunch to take up to Ontario, mainly for pike, but also for smallmouth. Looking back at pictures, it looks like I only fished the all white ones. When I got back and unpacked the wallet I had them I stuck it in some dark corner and there it sat long enough for the two that had 5 minute epoxy heads have the heads turn yellow. Looks like I used Liquid Fusion for most of the other heads. It had shrunk around the eyes leaving grooves between the eyes. What I did was wrap down the material behind the heads and then remove the coating, eyes and in most cases the thread head. I replaced some of the hackle on a couple of them just to shorten then new head. I think we're suppose to add the recipe. Here it goes.

Hook: Long shank streamer hook, straight eye, size 1/0 to 4/0 I used Tiemco, Eagle Claw, Varivas, Gamakatsu. Salt Water and Fresh Water

Thread: Color to match fly

Tail: Buck Tail, Flash, 3 to 6 saddle hackles, 1 or 2 on each side and on top

Body: Spey Hackle and Estaz or other long fiber sparkle chenille. Start with two or three wraps of chenille, then wrap 1 or two spey hackles, alternate chenille and hackle, last wrap should be spey hackle.

Head: Build up thread. Try for a bullet shape

Eyes: Your choice. In the remake I used "Living Eyes" 8.5 mm

Head Finish: UV resin of your choice.

Here's a few of the flies. I've found 18 so far. I have 12 done and 6 more to finish up.
