Charlie,

I've seen those weights, they do look cool.

BTW, I know you have asked about photographing flies before. Here's the easiest way to do it if you have a decent DSLR. First, set your fly up in your vise. Second, put your camera on a tripod. Third, place a backdrop behind the fly. Fourth, set the camera in aperture priority. Set the aperture to about 4 to 4.5 (this will shorten up your depth of field). Set the camera on timer mode or use a remote if you have one. Compose and shoot. If you shoot indoors, your shutter speed will be very slow so the tripod is mandatory and the timer or remote will help steady things too. If you shoot in AUTO mode the flash will go off and generally you do not want this as it will blow out the shiny parts of the fly. I hope you pursue this, it would be great to see more of your creations!

Dave
