  1. Surf Candies are a great fly for a subtle presentation. These mimic a small transparent fish very well. Made originally by Bob Popovics to fish bluefish in the surf, these quickly started showing up in fly fisherman's boxes for just about all species. Traditionally tied with this olive color, you can tie just about any color you want. They will match most of the hatches in the world both saltwater inshore and freshwater. These are also very durable flies since the first 1/3 of the fly is covered in epoxy. Toothy fish will not be able to rip off the flies hairs. Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 size 1/0 Thread: Clear Monofilament (fine) Fiber: Ultra Hair in Clear and Olive(or any fine crimped clear fiber) Flash: Flashabou (fine) Lateral Line: Flashabou (thick/saltwater) Epoxy: Solarez "Thin Hard", "Thick Hard" and "Ultra Thin - Bone Dry" formula's. https://youtu.be/pVDYJToSOaA
