Some times ago I did a point up silverside in synthetic material, but this round I'm doing it in natural, with the fibers from SnowRunner ( Nayat )
Silverside in synthetic material
Picture step by step tying instruction:
Cut medium size lead wire about 10cm and wind on a needle, the put into the mylar tube, trim and burn both edge, and insert a mono like shown in the picture.
This act as the counter weight for the hook to point up and also as the silver belly
Tie the weighted belly to the hook
Coat the belly and the hook with a thin coat of UV resin to further secure it
Tie in some white SnowRunner fibers to the back and some light grey to the front
Fold the light grey fiber to the back and tie down
Repeat with a darker grey fiber and tying with the fold back technique
Tie in the lateral flash... then tie in some light grey dubbing with foldback technique
Comb the fibers... then apply some colour to highlight the pattern... drop a small drop of epoxy and stick the epoxy eye.
Cheers... Happy tying
