I write Czechs

Hook: Tiemco 2487 Thread: 6/0 Danville white
Underbody: Wrapped lead tape
Body: Burnt Orang Scud Dubbing
Ribbing: 5x tippet and flat gold tinsel
Back: Latex Glove colored with markers

I've decide I want to try fishing more czech/scud type patterns so I whipped up my first batch. I found some lead tape at Uinta Golf and started tying. I really like the way lead tape makes the fly look and it adds a good amount of weight without the bulk of the lead wire.

Fished them today and they worked.

Good looking flies. Try the elastic material found in the sewing section at ace as a cheap, durable alternative to latex gloves.

the latex is really cheap and I like the durability so far along with look it has when colored.
