    I'll bet those will catch fish if you fish them properly.....first flies and you didn't crowd the eyelet!!!! Well done!!!!

    He just needs to use red for the black and add a set of blue wings.

    I've fished with LU a few times now and every time I ask him what he's using the answer is the same >>

    Lacey: Where'd you get that pistol?

    Fish those in the film during a caddis hatch. Could be lethal.

    Fish these on the bottom, on the hottest days of summer, when the water is low.

    Your flies are a fine imitation...

    You could market these by skewering 2 or 3 on a little plastic sword and packing a dozen into a fake plastic martini glass container...

    bw, was that a pattern you copied or something you made up? And exactly what was it you were trying to imitate? I assume it was a caddis stage.
    Just asking to give you an honest critique.

    Yeah Caddis Larva, I know they aren't comparable to the elite flies some can make on here. Im not worried about it.

    For larvae make your abdomen tighter wrapped and tapered. Try to be a little bit more definitive with the heads also. What you have there is closer to a pupa which is why Mudbug said it might be better fished in the film.
