Re: Want to tie czech/caddies nymphs
I have lots of substitutes for thin skin materials for the tops of flys like this; Sugical glove rubber, thin yellow and green plastic sheet, some dk green vinyl strip used to tie plants to stakes.
You can dub the fly with light colored dubbing and color with markers.
I've seen shaped lead/no-tox material designed to fit the top of a hook to shape and weight nymphs and I think I could make a close copy starting with thick solder or fuse wire and shaping it with pliers or hemostats.
Build the whole body with colored glass/plastic/metal beads and cover with skin or coat with epoxy or Hard head.
