Gibby's Wild-Eye Snook Fly
tied by SteveGibson

Hook: Mustad 34007 No. 4 or similar

Tail: White neck hackle

Tying Instructions: 1. Attach three to hook at the point

3. Add 2-3 strands flash
4. Tie in Body Fur and wind forward to just before the hook eye and whip finish.

Presentation Tips: The fly is great for sight-fishing snook in the surf. I make the cast and strip it in slowly. When the snook sees it and turns, I speed up the retrieve to trigger a strike.
It's also a good night snook fly and good for snook, redfish and seatrout on the flats.
