Yes. Epoxy bombers, brassie type stuff. Also did some daphnia on TMC 2488's in size thirty. They were fifteen sizes too big, but the perch ate them like candy. Three turns of fluorescent lime thread, coated. Ta da! (Dropped them off a micro-marabou jig)

If you have ever wondered what the guacamole in perch guts you catch through the ice is, it is daphnia, aka water fleas. They eat them by the teeming thousands, but there are NO commercial counterfeits. I think you might need a camera to tell when you are being bit though, I tried to feel the bites, and I just could not. The tiny bug glowed in the IR light from the Aqua View though. I filled a bucket!
