    That video inspired me to look into these bad boys. Holy cow. Fuggedabout all the dubbing and thising and thating in the attached tutorial video. Their approach takes about 20 minutes per fly. I use a little calf tail and rubber legs first for a rostrum and legs, follow it with 3 or 4 turns of Puglisi's 1 1/2" brush, lay down a chenille body and rib it with Puglisi's 1/2" brush. Tie down the shell and you're done. Takes about 5 minutes if I stop to for a few sips of coffee in the middle.

    Here's what you get doing it my way:

    Been using them on a visit to Florida this winter. They should be illegal!

    No I haven't. I think I would go through a whole lot of material to get just one.

    Sure look great but yeah, 23 minutes per fly seems a bit much just to possibly loose one on the first big fish. Yours look fantastic too...!!!
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    Nice tie, Brown Bear! Are you burning heavy mono for eyes?

    Check the link I provided. The eyes are pre-printed onto the shellbacks. Following the directions on the vid (at least on that point!), I put a dab of medium thickness UV cement onto the eyespot and hit that with a UV light. It's surprising how much it makes the eye stand out.
