Thanks for the kind words, guys. I know they're not exactly "traditional flies" without a lot of fur and feathers, but they really get the attention of many fish. I used the one with the black tail and yellow eyes for largemouth bass quite a bit during the last year. They smashed it pre-spawn, during the spawn, and post-spawn.
It's only a size 10 hook, but I've landed quite a few bass in the 4-6 pound range with it. Other than getting the right amount of epoxy on there, it's a simple fly to tie.
