Fat Head Squishy Streamer

About: I am an avid fly fisherman, and started a fly fishing channel where I tie flies and video myself fishing.

This fly moves really nicely in the water. The shell made by the UV resin makes this fly move very interestingly in the water. It glides and jerks kinda like a slow sinking jerk bait. The movement is very unique and uncommonly found in other flies. The fly looks great in the vice, but looks even better in the water. It is almost translucent and shows the yellow dubbing (you could even use orange) under the white dubbing.

Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 size 2 Thread: Ultra thread 70 denier in orange Tail Flash: Pearl web Fiber: Bull frog dubbing (white, yellow, pale olive, blue wing olive) Flash Fiber: Starburst dubbing (pearl, light gray, golden peacock) Stripes: Brown sharpie Eyes: 3D eyes size 7MM Resin: Solarez "flex formula" UV curing resin.
