That looks like a very effective fly.

I'd use Loon's UV Knot Sense for the shellback though- tie them up and stick them in a foam block. When it's sunny dot the backs, walk outside for 5 min, and you're all set.

Nice! I tie flies that call for a dab of epoxy, but I'm always too lazy. :D The UV stuff sounds tempting, however.
I think its too expensive to use on flies that take alot of it, but for things like these where its just a dab, I think its super convenient.
