Default Invasive Body Snatcher

Click the image to open in full size.

Just playing around in the Loch Leven vein with materials on hand
* dyed natural materials all from Finney's Flies

#10 buzzer hook
abdomen: orange ice dub
rib: gold UTC wire
palmer hackle: Sunburst badger cock *
shoulder hackle: hen grizzle dyed blue
legs: PT dyed claret, 3 on each side above plane of hook *
eyes: JC dyed flo yellow *
head: orange ice dub

Never fished one, but the profile seemed fun to experiment with as an attractor, or even a sort of hopper here in the West.

Thanks for looking

Hugh

I like it. I even like the name. I really like what you did with the head.

That's the male half, I need to work on a female fly, perhaps the Frau Blucher
