|This is a good fly for bigger fish.
Tie in a length of Steve farrah blend , belly white , then over that tie in some silver crystal flash.
Then add a cone of eze braid near the eye of the hook , then tye in your SFB as a veil round the cone , then use zap a dap a goo, with your finger, starting from the eye of the hook back , this will dry in 5 mins, add eyes with the same goo, then paint with t shirt paint over the head.
You can add lead wire at the cone stage or a piece of foam inserted into the conehead for a floating fly fishing on T14 etc.
