UV Gel Burrowing Sand Eel


Hi....I've been busy with the UV gel again....This time I've tied a Burrowing Sand Eel.... The hook shank is weighted Clouser style with 2 split shot, which dig into the sand (didn't have any lead dumbells).... The hook fish's shank down and when twitched, kicks up the bottom..... The fly fish's nose down like a fleeing Sand Eel trying to burrow into the sandy bottom.
Cheers Dave



Material used for this fly...

Thanks a lot
