Thanks for the tips! I picked up a bead chain on the way home from work yesterday and tied these up last night, using some leftover size 6 TMC 300 hooks. I should have just tied one, waited for the cement to dry, and tested it in the water before tying more as Dan said, but I couldn't help myself once I started. If nothing else its good practice.
I also found that putting a few strands of black bucktail in with the flash makes for a more pronounced lateral line, which may be more for me than the fish

As sort of an afterthought on this one, I added a few short strands of orange on the bottom for a throat, as I have seen on a lot of my favorite stick baits for spin fishing. I theorize that it may also deepen the bait's profile in the water a little. I will be sure to post if it actually does anything to help though
