    Arrow Chartreuse Hedge Hog

    Ok here is another. And since I kinda made it up, I ask My lovely wife what it looked like. She said a Hedgehog! So That is what I will call it !

    It has a Rabbit strip tail, With Chartreuse and white rubber with sparkle.
    And a Chartreuse sparkle Chenille body with the rabbit strip continuing up the spline and over the dumbbell eyes. Creating a Mohawk look. With white/Chartreuse sparkle rubber whiskers. And epoxy nose.

    For the Marble Eyes also ! What do you think ?

    Looks like it would be deadly on a smallmouth stream. That thing has Elkhorn Creek written all over it. Your wife got the name right as well.

    Did you tie those eyes on top of the hook shank?

    Yes, Then glued them in place with zap a gap. Then tied everything else on.

    That fly looks awesome! I agree with Tim in that it looks like a KILLER smallie fly! I would imagine you could get some bucket mouths on that thing too...way to go! I'll be looking for the "Chartreuse Hedge Hog" at local fly shops soon...lol
