    Do those eggs come in a larger size? I think that pattern tied on a 2/0 with a longer tail of marabou would be fool a king or two.

    That's a good-looking fly for sure. I'm not sure how to go about getting it to sink. Maybe a longer-than-normal drift so you can use less weight?

    Might wanna make the puffs a little smaller...gonna be hard to get that much yarn down deep, and probably be a huge pain in the ass to cast.

    Instead of tying puffs, a fella could use craft store pompoms and save a heck of a lot of time...plus, you can get all kinds of pompoms, from iridescent and sparkly to metallic and all different sizes.

    Throw it in the tub, see how long it takes to start sinking, and how much water it holds when you yank it out...that will probably dictate what size puffs to use.

    i did 20 wraps of lead wire on the shank to aid in sinking. the puffs arent as big as it looks in the picture. and the hook is free from the puffs, kinda articulated.

    Sweet.

    Now show it to the audience that is always the most critical, and be sure to get a picture with "fly in mouth".
