1/8oz standup jig head with a 1/0 hook from bass pro, dipped in spike it black paint then cured. Deer hair with a piece of clear crystal flash on each side and red eyes I found on ebay a little while back

Thanks for the compliment. That pattern works extremely well on trout, when it gets wet it looks amazing. I figured it would work on bass from my days of chasing field minnows as a kid to  fish with. The dace is an awesome live bait. When it comes to trout, its the same thing minus lead. I usually tie it on a size 14 scud hook.

Theyre sticky but you must super glue them, the sticky isnt enough. I found them on ebay like I said but fly tying shops have various sizes of stuff too. Ive also used google eyes from craft stores on baits.

 

I also cover my wraps in sally hansen hard as nails found in the beauty section of the dollar store or walmart.

I use about the same stuff on my wraps. Get some funny looks sometimes when you go in and thats all you buy. Lol!

Thank you, ive been getting a little rusty at the tying bench till I got back into tying bass stuff. I really dont get into the fly fishing like I used too. I remember sitting at the indianapolis speedway tying in front of a crowd a little size 28 trico spinner and those guys out there were just blown away that a fly could be tied that small. Heck, thats normal if you want to fish the creek I grew up on mid summer. Its learn to tie and fish that or dont catch fish.

 

I was actually blown away buy how much I really have in materials and tools when doing the trebles a couple weeks ago, boxes and boxes of necks. Honestly, id sell most of it but I would hate it for my boy to grow up and want to learn how to do it and have to buy it all again. I own tools that at one point it looked like they would never be made again, like wing burners.
