Matt´s Gnat Possum

Inspiration is a wonderful thing. A few days ago M.Fauvet(The Limp Cobra) posted a tying video by Matt Grobert. Never heard of him and have never seen the technique he uses for spinning peacock herl with fur or other material. I got inspired and carried away. Check out Matt Grobert´s YT-channel or go to: http://thelimpcobra.com/. Special thanks to Mr.Fauvet!

The Mop Caddis…

20120325-164134.jpg

I was walking, almost like a zombie, through a store that I had no interest in the other day when I saw very green thing in the corner of my eye. I was thinking bodies for caddis immediately. The thing I saw is some sort of mop for dusting. I just cut one of and burn it lightly to shape the body. Then I use Pantone to add colour. I´m going to make peeping caddis out of this “material” as well. The thing was set to about one dollar…and there are lots of bodies on it.
