That is one gaudy fly. I love it! I need to go to Dan Huff's school of fly tying. I have all of these mallard feathers and nothing to do with them....I think we could work out a deal. The pics took a little while to download. Besides that the presentation is really cool. One question, did the fly work? You need to add a pic of you with a big ass fish you landed on that monster.
I think the bass would love the fly. I liked the software as well. It was a bit slow to load with my netbook but worth it. Thanks
Hey Dan,Nice flashing fly! Do you ever add a cone head to to this bad boy to get it down faster or do you pinch on some lead?RexMan
I'll take a look at the speed issue, my pictures were probably the cause. Thanks for the feedback!
Rexman, I like this fly to have a big fat head on it, it helps the fly move by pushing more water. I do like coneheads, just not for my sculpins. If you are having trouble getting deep or are fishing a narrow fast run, adding a little split shot will help. I'm fishing over on the west side for a few days, hopefully I can pin this fly in the corner of an angry steelheads jaw!
Hey AO,Picked up some olive wool today and checked out utube for some additional tying tips so I am ready to try to make one of these bad boys!Planning to hit the hard water Saturday since the word is they are killing the perch near Saginaw Bay. Of course I'll be bringing some nymph patterns test out...RexMan
Rexman,Sounds good! Let me know if you have any questions with the sculpins.A.O.
A.O.Tied my first Steelhead Sculpin...turned out nice. Sent you a pix. Should work nicely for browns on the Au Sable too. Definitely need to do some more night fishing in 2011!RexMan
