Bucktail Dragon - Olive

tied by BigDaddyHub
Fly Type: General Freshwater,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Recommended Region: Southeast US,
Imitation: Dragonflies,
Material List:
Tail is olive bucktail, tied on a large needle with a Madame X wrap. Head is palmered with ostrich herl. The head itself is 2mm craft foam, pulled forward and secured at the hook eye. Wings are black deer hair, tied in on top of the shank, splayed, and tied in with Figure 8 wraps. This fly is much easier than it looks!
Tying Instructions: See above and don't be afraid to add your own twists and style to this pattern
Presentation Tips: I fish this on in moving water and still water, especially close to bank cover like lily pads and cattails
