Good Day,

The trick with working with materials like Sili Skin is to take a deep breath, plan ahaed and take your time! Patience is a virtue when working with this material - but patience will reward you. Go slow...

Thanks Kasper,

That is a shame, but eye-catching they certainly are.

Regards,
Les

Helge and Les,

the rubber sand eels are not difficult to tie, but pretty useless as the silicone starts to curl and the fly to spin. More an eye catcher than a practical fly.

Nice work!
Those sand-eels are amazing. Any chance of an article on how to tie them?
