Articulated Streamers Swap

Recommended Posts

I'm doing tubeflies. 5 are done, 7 to go! Body is silver holographic tinsel, ribbed with a grey saddle hackle, counterribbed with one strand of the holotinsel, winged with black Artic fox and a collar of long yellow Marabou hackle, head black metallic cone. It has lots of movement in the water!!

I Mailed mine today. You should have them by Wednesday or Thursday. I also used arctic fox for the back tail as I think it has some of the best underwater movement. I hope you all like them.

 

Although I designed it (after seeing Dhise's nymphomaniac in a gift fully loaded Orivs vest) for fishing flats down in the keys and Caribbean, I havent used it for that yet. I can vouch that it caught a monster rainbow in the Lehigh River and and many smallmouth on the Frankstown branch of the little J, both here in PA.

Address please. These are a little different than the pic I posted earlier. I weighted them with dumbell eyes instead of lead wire. I also used regular width zonker strips on the back hook but the front zonker is still magnum size. I think it gives the fly a nice taper. I also used a gamakatsu octopus hook in the back instead of the 3366 I was using.
