Hot spot Bugs

Nothing to special here, Just a few bugs, using Glo-Brite Floss as hot spot, Body Quill, Nymph Head' Steelhead Blue Tungsten Beads, Fine Wire, Magic Shrimp Foil, Benecchi Thread and Jacks Dubbing. More on Jack's dubbing coming soon.
I really like how the Glo-Brite Floss adds to the fly, and my only complaint is that it builds up rather quickly. These are only a few wraps to secure. The bugs do pop out at you though.

They fish really well. I have had the best luck with pink hot spots. I have tried yellow and lime green, but pink out fishes them .

very nice bugs! What size are those?

Also, just saw your name listed as one of the tiers at the Valley Forge PA show next weekend. Will you still be there? I live really close by and I'll be there all day on Sat. I'll try to hunt you down. I'm dying to see some of your stoneflies up close!

Dub, I will not be there, I will actually be in New Jersey next week for a ski and snowboard trade show. Send me an email with your addy and i will twist up a stonefly bug for ya. The hotspots mostly were size 14. Cheers.
