    Nice, I wonder if it is soft and undulates or is flex coated all the way? If it swims I would like to make some for the Rainbows here. They gotta look real to the fish. (Well sorta,) The eye is what I like, hopefully fish would like it too. Any color you want, what do you use to coat the head area to make it smooth like that?

    its all soft. seems the only place you put some glue is for the eyes and to secure the dubbing loop if ya want.

    just tied up a smart minnow and tried to make it look like a rainbow trout using permanent markers! not bad for the 1st try of the recipe ever and I am no artist with markers lol.. used epoxy for the eyes. 1st time using epoxy. I see it doesn't set fast like head cement. sweet! will make another tomorrrow cause its too late to make more. not bad for the 1st one I ever tried to make. you can color this stuff pretty good and the color stays decent! use epoxy and press the eyes after it sets some and the head forms nice as the epoxy soaks in some. then I clipped the hair to make the hook show so I don't get it fouled and combed it with a mustache brush to shape it. I also colored it in better after it dried
