Flounder Around

 
tied by striblue
Fly Type: General Saltwater,
Target Species: Striped Bass,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: Flounder,
Material List:
Hook- 3/0- Varivas wide gap; Thread- white, Body- light brown foam and Mallard flank feather; Tail- Brown rabbit strip and Crystal flash. White pait, samll eye and epoxy. Two leaded bumbells for hook shank.
Tying Instructions: Please see picture sequence.... Choose appropriate feathers... cut foam to shape... then tye in two dumbells... epoxy mallard flank feather on top of cut foam as shown..leave ends of the mallard flank over lapping..this is important as it will give the fish the appropriate fins. Mark the top with brown marker and (although not shown on this pattern) dot with a few ,no more than say 5 dots of white paint).. Then secure the foam body to the hook and push the hook though the body... I have changed this pattern to have the hook long enough to come off the end of the fly without going thought the body. Then glue in the the flash and then rabbit hair with goop as shown... then cover the bottom at the hook shank and the rabbit hair as shown with epoxy to lock the pattern to the hook... flip over and add eyes... than cover the entire body with a thin coat of epoxy...let set , then paint the bottom white with the usual acylic paint..let dry...then cover that with Hard as hull to secure the paint in.
