Very nice fly!!
Can you give some tips on how you do the body, because I can't fo a body with the shape like you do.
Thank you very much!

Hello Jota,

Tie in the tail first. The body is made with EZ Body Braid... With the braid it is easy to achieve a fishform shape. Paint the back of the braid with a marking pen. The sili skin goes over. Trim the skin and glue the eyes at the end.

Hope this helps!

Hello Vlad,
Thank you very much, now I understand what was missing in my attempts: the sili-skin step.
And now I understand why the fly is called "Sili-skin"
Thanks once again!!!
