Hook: Orvis VMC 8529 #10 ( 1X long nymph )

Tail: Clump of picric acid dyed pine squirrel belly hair surrounded by grey squirrel body hair

Body: About ten wraps of 0.015 lead wire, over that is a dubbing loop of back, side, and belly pine squirrel mixed & dyed in picric acid, over this a palmered cree hackle dyed in picric that has one side stripped, and ribbed over that with fine copper wire for strength cool.gif .

Regards,
Mark

Nice fly I think I need to go squirrel hunting.

Magnum Wooly Buggar:
Long shank streamer hook, pictured is a Mustad 34011 #1
Neck hackles splayed, maroon grizzley & black pictured
Marabou plumes, thin stemmed, palmered on hook. pictured a red and two blacks
Rubber or silicone legs, four on each side in the front and back. Pictured Sili legs black with red tip.
Medium or large chenine or antron chenille overwrapped with neck hackle, pictured black for both.
Weedguard appropriate for hook size.

I've caught many bass and redfish on this pattern in color variations from this to white/grey, chartreuse/black, purple/black, brown/orange, yellow/black.




That is one nice looking fly. It looks like it would slay the reds around the oyster bars.

Kirk,

That has to be one of the most awsome redfish flies I have ever seen...looks like it lands soft on happy tailers.


Panama, it pushes a lot of water but once the marabou is saturated, it kind of plops down on the water. Fortunately we don't have overly skittish redfish when it comes to fly presentation like ya'll do. I think a synthetic hair loop dubbed around the shank in place of the marabou would give a softer entry since synthetics like EP fibers and Congo hair shed water on one backcast. I'll have to try that, thanks for gettin me thinking.

Thanks,
Kirk
Every now and then, I'll make a video, wish I could find time to do more; here is the link:

I've got a few folders with photos of flies, these get more updates than my videos:

Body: Dubbing Loop with Cream Angora Goat (Cream)
Dubbing Loop with Baby Legs Alive (Grey) (make sure and pick out Angora while wrapping this over the top of it)

Tied up a few tonight. Here's one I'm calling Bead Back Bugger.

Tail - Brown Marabou
Flash - Root beer crystal flash
Beads - Threaded on a wire
Body - Flash back material
Hackle - Something brown

Tie in the tail and the flash. Then tie down the flash and hackle. Then tie in the beads that are on the wire. Wrap the flash, then tie the beads on top, and wrap the hackle between the beads.

Pretty strange fly I know, but I had to give it a try once I got the idea.

Tail: Black marabou
Body: Black wool
Overbody: Peacock herl
Hackle: Gray Ostrich or Emu
Weight: Dental lead foil


This works really well for trout and smallmouth. The gray hackle gives a minnow or helgramite look. Large Emu or ostrich moves like marabou but holds shape like hackle.
Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for the day; Teach a man to tie flies and he'll pick up all the roadkill.

This is one I made it has sequens on the the front to form a head that should push some water and give this thing some wild movement.

I call this one the Sparkle Tiger I tied this one for Bass this Summer worked really well in Dark water and in cover

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929
