Once again, great flies! clapping.gif

 

Did you epoxy the head area? Just asking cause I'm wondering if the material blocking the hook gap is epoxied or still soft so it won't affect your hookup ratio.

I place a small amount of epoxy between the eyes on top to fill in the gap, then a thin layer over the eye, and then a drop underneath. The material is still soft under the fly. I am ultra anal about hook gaps on my flies. What good is a fly if it can't catch fish.

what kind of epoxy do you use?

You don't go past the eyes with the epoxy?

 

Nice flies. Especially the 1st one in the 2nd picture.

I use five minute epoxy and I will go past the eye with the epoxy if I am tying a big 6/0 or 8/0 but with these 2/0 I don't because I am paraniod about the gap in the hook.
