EP Finger Mullet
McFlyLures posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchEP style flies are staples in many saltwater fishermans boxes. And the Mullet style pattern is definitely an important fly to have when fishing in the gulf. Redfish, sea trout, and many other species love mullet. This is more a finger mullet pattern, being so small. You can tie it larger, but I find this 2.5" size is best. Mullet tend to have darker colored heads vs the rest of their bodies. Their heads are also large and wide, so you need a wide profile head for a good imitation. Also, most mullet tend to have silvery looking eyes, so I find a silver eye works best. However you could use red or any other color you want. While this fly does take a long time to tie, it will last through many fish strikes. Its rather durable when tied correctly, and is really effective. Here is a list of materials I used to tie this fly Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 in size 1/0 Thread: Veevus Power Thread 140 in Brown Fiber: Congo Hair in "Natural White", "Caddis Tan", and "Medium Brown" Eyes: 3D stick on eyes Eye Adhesive: Fletch Tite Head Cement: Bone Dry UV Curing Resin made by Solarez

A couple more with my new materials
USCGFlyGuy posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchFinally got to toss these woolhead mullet in the water and they are everything I could ask for and more, so I tied a few more variations. So far only a few trout, but i will find you Redfish! Smaller can be better - Size 4 Pre-Barred craft fur from Hobby Lobby - Stuff is kinda funky (in a bad way) And a slider...
These should get them interested
USCGFlyGuy posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchJust received a bunch of new materials Saturday and these are what I have come up with so far. Really like tying with the Sculpin wool, and the Peacock feathers are fun too! Not sure about the XL aluminum eyes yet... but we will see. I cant wait to throw these as soon as the water warms... someday. Mullet - ish Big ugly - Should ride hook point up, but I am not sure how the Aluminum eyes will effect it yet.
