    Taking my que from Andrzej and his color combinations I spotted recently I've made these 2 and will refine the look with a few more. Tied on Pro Sportfisher micro tubes with a short clear hook holder behind, only the small cone as weight.

    I don't really use too many Scandi type flies for my fishing but I absolutely love tying them. It seems a while since I tried one so did this one recently. Seemed only right to use the famous Wille Gunn colours. I had one of these in my box last year with a cone head but felt it wasn't fishing...

    Always had a few break off in the past, but appears to be happening more frequently. Looking for ideas to cut down breakages. I use superglue instead of varnish to finish the fly and then burr cone on. Is superglue making the plastic brittle? Would I be better using a thicker superglue or...
