This time I have something for sea trout, sea bass and other species, not only saltwater because colors of this pattern are quite universal. The Lesser Sand Eel is a favorite prey of many predators, so in my opinion good to have an imitation during a trip to the Baltic sea or the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.

The wing in this pattern I have used slightly transparent syntetic hair - the Crystal Hair which looks realistic when wet.

For finishing of the head good quality UV resin is something what I like, the Cure Cure Goo, the Bug Bond or other brand like below and tested by me I can recommend.

 

Materials:

Hook: Gamakatsu F314

Thread: UNI Mono fine

Body: Ice Dub Silver + pearl UNI Mylar

Wing: Crystal Hair in Clear and Hot Chartreuse, and Tinsel Hair Plus in Black/Hot Yellow

Eyes: here 3D type

Glue: UV resin
