Got another Alaskabou Fly tied up

This one is a #6 Volcano

Posted Image

Size 6 Daiichi 2441
Black 8/0 Uni
Small Gold Mylar Tinsel
Orange Flashbou + Pearl Krystal Flash (two layers)
Red Marabou + Pearl Krystal Flash with another layer of Red Marabou
UV Resin

Didn't do a great job on the head. Didn't leave enough room.

These flies are mainly for fishing salmon in Alaska but I don't see why Atlantic Salmon and Steelies won't go for them :)

Thanks for the comments lykos33 :)

*SCULPIN CLOUSER.
Hook: #8 gamakatsu 4xl
Eyes: Here nickle plated, should be gold.Medium I think :unsure:
Thread: Tan 6/0
Wing: Olive bucktail, Pearl krystal flash, and red fox squirrel tail.

This is fly pattern I got from a Dick Talluer book I checked out from the library.
The eyes should be gold. The book called for tan craft fur, but I have substituted with Olive bucktail.
The pearl krystal flash is supposed to be gold spirit river spectra flash.

I plan to use this fly more in the spring for smallmouth bass and cutties.

*note, The dinosuar is a lamp, who by the way has been my fly tying buddy since grade school. B)

Thanx.

Get Small!
