New flies

Had a little time last night so I tied a few more flies for the ever increasing collection. I love using Party wig hair in my flies. Its a little trickier to tie but the amount of volume it gives you with such minimal weight is worth the effort. Not only that its a treat to cast as it has little water retention.

This fly here I took short clumps of the black wig hair and build it on top of each other to make the collar. Trimmed the bottom as you would do if you were trimming a bucktail popper just to free the hook up

Another version of the Ballydoona bomber. This time in red. This works best with Purple Zonker strip tied in behind the head.
