December flies from the Vise

+10. Notenuftoys on the great looking HaresEars. The biots and dark bead make for great combo. Biots are kinda a pain for me but really look buggy on those!

Last fly of year for me is a Rusty Rat tied as a hat pin to be given away at next week's Dallas Fly Fisher's meeting.

 

These "broach style" hooks are a pain to tie on and caused a few problems, but it should look good on a hat. biggrin.png

 

Happy New Year Everyone!

Thanks, denduke. I've struggled with biots so this was a way to force myself to tie a bunch of them over and over and see if I could figure it out. I think I did and I'm happy how the batch came out.

It's only 10:51pm, so I'm sneaking this one under the wire.

 

I actually tied it yesterday after playing around with some materials. I wanted a bass fly with a bunch of movement, eye-catching flash and weight to get down and ride the bottom. It has a rabbit strip tail, polar chenille body, rubbers legs (weren't included in the first few I tied), schlappen collar and ice dub around the lead eyes.

 

I call it the Vegas Hippie. I hope fish will call it lunch.

Great idea to use the rabbit/ schlappen instead of hair fibers/bucktail on some salty clousers. They would prolly work great down here in da salt as well as for ole bucket mouth! Gotta get some polar chennile/ice dub all I got is Estaz.... I always go for the sparkle..
