Default Im Back! With my new fly I am calling the Glass Candy

Hey guys, I just finished the ridiculously long process of moving from California to New Mexico. I finally was able to unpack all my stuff, and setup for a quick video. I now have a bit more room to work with in the new place, and was able to shoot with the camera over the shoulder so you can get the POV type of video. (Thanks for those who recommended this). Sorry I have been away for over a month, I just really had many issues with this move. We have been staying in a hotel for what seems like forever. Anyway, now that I am unpacked, I will be back to my 1-2 video's per week schedule. Please enjoy this new video.

The Mc Fry Glass Candy is a variation of my Mc Fry Glass Minnow in which I epoxy up the hook shank a bit more. I also use a few different materials as well. This is a very realistic looking fly that is made to mimic small fry or glass minnows. Occasionally fish will be feeding exclusively on these small fish. When they do that, you need to get a good fry imitation out there. I tied this to be very realistic and mimic the small fry perfectly.

Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 size 1/0
Thread: Danville ultra fine monofiliment
Body wrap: Super Pearl Braid, and Super tinsel twist
Fiber: Super Flash Dubbing (Pearl and Holo-Silver)
Eyes: 3/32" silver eyes
Epoxy: Solarez "thin hard" and "bone dry" formula
