The clear acrylic is cured with visible blue NON UV light and a clear top coat defeats the problematic tacky residue...
I LOVE THIS STUFF!

Playin' around with high/low ties then welding in the mylar gill plates, 3D eyez, and peacock herl... weshallsee!?

A DarkOpsDualTubePhly...
I've blended some long black hackles with Midnight "Devil 'n Blend" then finished the body with segments of splayed buck tail to enhance the wide-body profile...
The 3D eyez were spot welded in place over the lower "junction tube" along with 3 wide black hackles, buck tail chin, and peacock herl to finish the profile...

because Striped predators "NEVER" eat crabs... [well, maybe sometimes]

'sparsely applied over porous mylar tubing... 'slightly negative ballast for a slow sinking sensation...
