Couple of pics ofmy first attempt at a gamarus. Mostly for practice , wrong hook, homemade shell back, and trying to use dubbing loop for first time with pheasant tail fibres. Lots goin on there but seems to look tasty anyway.

Simpler version til I get what I need to make the deluxe model. Lol. Turned out better than expected but next time I will use a copper wrap under the dubbing for a heavier version.
Darn night time photos , need a photo light box.

Five minute scud. These are fun to tie and doesn't take a lot of time to spit one out that will work but there are some really lifelike patterns I still would like to attempt when I'm geared up. These like most patterns work well in a variation of color but these are the shades I see when I'm in the water I fish. Hope it works.

This time I glossed up a nicely cupped mallard flank before draping it over the dubbing. Seems to give the desired effect on its own.
