It looks good to me! I haven't made any of the epoxy flies myself though. Have you tried it in the water yet? How does it move?

Really I guess it is ultimately up to the fish! I would think that they will love it. Smile

Very nice, can't wait to hear about all the fish it hooks, cause it looks like it can do the job.
