Kicking some glass :) Sultry Shiner and Killer Caddis

I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and do some thing different. I have been playing with beads and found this pattern in a book. I changed the first one a little to make them more original even though these were charted patterns. Let me know what you think.

Sultry Shiner

Hook:  Mustad 3366 size 4
Thread: Clear mono thread
Body: Clear beads
Tail:  You can choose what ever colors of superhair
Head:  2 peach center beads and a large clear
Eyes:  Red 3d eyes
Glue: I used clear nail polish with glitter in it over the whole head

On the bottom one I put silver lite brite in the middle. I like this version but it covers the beads on the inside. 

Killer Caddis

Hook:  Tiemco 2457 Size 16
Thread: Clear mono thread
Body: Olive or tan glass seed beads
Rear: Your choice of rabbit dubbing
Head:  Your choice of rabbit dubbing in loop


  1. I've caught a dozen species on the killer caddis & yours would definitely do the trick. Your header picture is amazing Dustin!

  2. Dustin the killer caddis's are awesome. I bet that if you coated over those glass beads with an epoxy they would really shine. Great work.

  3. I need to get me a good epoxy system! Thanks John about the picture. Of course it is too perfect for someone like me to take it lol. It was taken by one of my favorite outdoor photographer Pat Clayton.
