Doc Halls Tailing Shrimp
McFlyLures posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchDoc halls tailing shrimp was designed specifically to fish the flats for bonefish by Daniel "doc" Hall. He is a legendary bone fisherman that created many amazing flies that do a good job in tricking those tough and skittish bonefish. Hook: Gamakatsu SL45 Bonefish Hook size 8-2 (I am using size 6) You can also use any bonefish type hook. Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed color pink (pink, orange, salmon, brown and tan can all work) Also, you can use any thread size you feel comfortable with, I just like the ease of building a head with the flat waxed. Body: Super fiber color tan (tan, light brown, pink, orange, and white all work) You can also use buck tail. Flash: Krystal Flash color Gold (but you can use any color you want, get creative) Back: Grizzly saddle hackle, Use the cheaper stuff, no need for dry fly hackle. Just whatever you use for your wooly buggers or streamers. Make sure its thin on the tips though. Epoxy: Solarez "Thin Hard" UV curing epoxy.
