  1. Wow, ultra realistic.

    I'd call it a "Muddy" fly. :)

  2. Looks (and chews?) like the real deal, but still is fake. So, why not call it Surimi ;)
    Again silicone and eggyarn? Damn, you're an artist with that stuff.. Bigup! Maybe i should take some lessons from you, to reduce the mess on my tyingtable and fingers ;) lol
    keep up the great work..

  3. Hi, have you tested it and is it successful?
