I'm running out of "stealth bombers" and have been tying another batch.

I haven't been able to find this color of chartreuse rubber legs recently. Grrr... I can sub here, but really like it for "button fly" spinner patterns.

I had never taken a photo of a fly in my vice so I thought I'd give it a try, vs the "action shots" here.

I just used some duct tape to hold a blue 3x5 card up for a back ground and a magnifier app on the phone to see how it would work. This is the actual fly from the white bass photo so it's already caught several fish. The body is brushed out macrame yarn. Cheap, fast, effective.
