Fly Tying

FTF Fly Pattern - kayakflyfisher - Dirk's Fish Xtractor

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the nice comments. I first tied this fly several years ago, but never fished it. I stuck it in my display case for when I tie at conclaves. Earlier this month, at Southern Council Conclave, one of my friends was looking at the case and said "I really like this fly. What's it called?", to which I replied, "I don't know, and I've never fished it." He said I should, so curiosity got the better of me, and I took it out about a week ago. The fish wouldn't leave it alone. The bass and big bluegill weren't overly excited about the other flies I normally use in this location, but were crazy about the Xtractor.

I thought it might just be that one day, so I went out again on another day to another location and it was the same story. I guess I should listen to my friends more often.
