    Nice fly Dennis. I would imagine they're pretty weighty, especially once you get into salty sizes?

    Lovely fly, I'd like to try trapping some sort of air sac in the upper half to make them float a little. A tiny modification that could also be tried would be to pre-rib the silver hook shank with black floss silk in open spiral turns to represent the intestines etc. in the same way that Dick Walker did with the Polystickle.

    Good idea Richard. Perhaps some open cell foam or even bubble wrap would do the trick?
