Yep Thats exactly what it is. Apparently Booyah has spinnerbait skirts you can change. I just cut it in front of the rubberband, and push my hook through the middle. Then with lots of strands in front of the rubberband I tie it off with lots of thread and uv glue.You could use rattles, spinners, whatever! Do ya think they need eyes?

Great flies, bass ought to eat 'em up. Eyes woudl look good one them, make them look more like a shad or small gill.
Did you add weight to them for fishing deeper?

Fishinbear, Well this stuff is really light weight, but it sinks pretty fast, without any x-tra weight. It's new to me so I'm still experimenting with it.
My next fly will be with a rattle, although I don't know how to tie one on.(Any hints from anyone?) Then I'll post more pics! With eyes!

They make "fly rattles" I think Cabelas has them, I have used the plaistic ones that you add to bass jigs, I cut any x-tra stuff off if there is any, like holes on the end to slide over a hook, then wrap it on the hook shank with heavy thread and zap-a-gap it. After that has dried I wrap a chennile bodey over it. The rubber does sink on its own, but at times bass hit better on a reaction bite a bait moveing or droping fast, they arent really hungry but when something moves fast clsoe to them they just cant help but hit at it. When I am fishing conventional gear I always play with diffrent weights on plastic baits and jigs, for an ideal, last nov I was fishing on my lake three days in a row, day one I caught most of my bass on a 1/4 ounce jig around docs and the 3rd day a 1/2 ounce worked better. On day two I couldnt catch one on a jig but they hit a bomber crankbait allday long, ya just never know lol
