Beatles

September 13, 2017

Its always good to have few of these in the box and will give these a bash on most stretches of water. I'm curtain that if I present these too most Carp they will gobble them up and am hoping that maybe one or two Yellows up in Lesotho will think the same. Super easy to construct although I think I could have used a slightly shorter hackle at the front.

The top three I added a couple of rubber legs just to give off some extra vibration. I used some of my Slab Slayer ice dub blend for the under body and Thorax area. The foam is just 2 mm flat sheet foam folded over itself for extra buoyancy and I used a brown and also a grizzly hackle for the legs. The yellow dot on the top is purely an indicator mark with fluoro yellow nail polish. (Click images for larger View)

I also added a few of these Water Beatles (Shield Beatles) to my box. Under body is fiery red spiky squirrel dubbing. then palmered a grizzly hackle town the length of the body then added a foam body shell. I was going to leave them like that but decided that adding some pheasant tail knotted legs would finish the fly off properly and am rather stoked with the end product.
