I recently came up with this pattern for tarpon and snook using the new Pelagic 3-D molded eyes. I was looking for an imitation for Threadfin Herring, or as they are known around here as "Greenbacks."
The body is layered with white, gray, olive and yellow Icelandic Sheep and topped with olive crystal flash. The Pelagic Eyes are gorgeous, hard, handmade, durable and come in a variety of color combinations. Very different than traditional 3-D eyes - very cool.
This fly maintains just the right profile, is easy to cast and has a great swimming action.
Look for more to come..
