Default Size 18 Aquatic Biomass Subsurface Indigenous Scavenger Nymph

After long hours of researching and studying the BigT's Hooch Aquatic Biomass theory, I came up with this fly designed specifically to penetrate the aquatic biomass, undulate through the current, pierce through the algae and forage along the bottom like a scavenger and target all cold water species of trout indigenous to this area. Without further ado.........I present to you the Aquatic Biomass Subsurface Indigenous Scavenger Nymph or AB Scavenger for short.

That's yummy. I tie something with those colors but not as purty as that one with the double beads and pt legs.

Great tie! I had a similar concoction I forgot to post. Great minds and all that.
Splurged and got the Deer Creek Diamond Fine UV Rez on a tip today in the mail and played around with it some. It costs an arm and a leg but I like it way better than Loon. Well see how it hold up.

I tie tons of perdigons and the loon UV resins are garbage imo

Deer creek is much better but the best one Iíve came across is solarez bone dry,
Give it a try when you run out of deer creek and I think youíll like it

Itís a good hard and clear finish thatís not tacky at all

Thanks. I was actually wondering about the solarez as it came up in the suggestions when I got the deer creek. The loon gets tacky for sure unless I use a very thin coat and spread with a brush. And a second coat doesn't always help, then some people say use another coat of sally which kinda defeats the purpose. I get confused with the torches they suggest using with different finishes (lumens, blue light, purple light, etc) but I'm sure its some sales gimmick and doesn't make that much of a difference.

Man that looks awesome... I'd like to tie some of those but I have no idea what you used for the body. What's the red head above the bead if its not another bead? Resin over thread?

Great tie Prowler! I tie a similar one using veevus body quill and 140 fl orange thread in the back.

Also, +1 on the Solarez Bone Dry. I bought some at Alpharetta outfitters and it's the bomb. Cures fast, no tack, and almost no odor. Problem is that it's pretty thin stuff, so if you want to build a bulkier wing case it'll take around 3 coats. However, I'd rather my UV thin that requires layering rather than super thick.
