In order to get this forum some more I thought id start posting some step by step pictures and instructions on tying different flies every week. My camera isnt that good so maybe it would be better for you to do these chad or just for me and you to do them at your house. Lets see your flies when theyre done too!
This week we will be tying a half and half and it will catch croaker, flounder, redfish, speckled trout, largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass. Just to name a few!!
start out with a base wrap
then put a pair of dumbell eyes on the hook and start to cross wrap on it
when done eyes should be straight and level with the hook eye
then tye in some hackle make it so they spread out and it looks like it should be flying like a bird
then tye in a clump of synthetic flash(optional but prefered)
then on top of the hook tye in your lighter colored bucktail or in this case purple
then wrap behind the eyes so it is flat with the hook
then wrap on black bucktail or the darker colored bucktail
wrap so none of the excess hair sticks out
apply some softex for a glue
