I don't tie to many epoxy buzzers but I have a few in my box I was determined to find a use for some magic quills they are translucent so I wrapped them over ice blue uv Mylar for the body and cheeks the photo only picks up some of the effect.
Thanks Bill I was just looking at the packet of quills and I can't make out the name lol over stylised writing but they are Magic Quills transparent and tapered another tier gave me them to try I think they suit buzzers hard to beat the natural thing on other flys.
Thanks for the confirmation Grahame.
I’ve got some synthetic quills made by Hareline that are almost transparent. They have just a light touch of pale dun color along with the darker band. I’ll give your pattern a try with these and see if I can come close to your beauty.
