Default Why does it look like it is FLYING?

Is it me or does this look like it is going to take flight?

Realized I need to group the materials with the dumbbells differently. Sure does look nice moving in the water though.

Okay, it's a Clouser tied out of some flash and saddles. Does this variation have a name yet? If not what should it be called?

Hello,

In my opinion this fly looks very good. I am sure it moves pretty nice when you strip in the line.

A good name could be: Sand Hopper

I'm no Clouser expert, but sure like the color combo you came up with, it just looks killer in the water, congrats!

Thanks! Was the first fly I got wet in way too long. Bad choice for a first fly considering how rust my casting is. (Yes, I bonked myself in the head with it.)

Sand Crasher? Sand Hopper? I think of it as a "Winged Clouser".

Used to tie a lot of splayed-wing and splayed-tail smallie flies. They seem to have some extra subtle movements to me, except when they are sitting still.
