Billfish fly candy

Here's another Bill fish fly I tied up last week. I 1st tied on some long White,Brown & Grizzly microbarb saddle hackles near the bend of the hook.Then added a clump of black bucktail around the hook shaft. Then followed that with some Gold,Brown & Black fine tinsel for the main body and tail. I then repeated the microbarb combinations with shorter feathers. Then palmered on two burnt orange marabou hairline feathers at the front and finished the fly off with a couple of 15mm rattle eyes, bugbonded together. Total length of the fly 280mm tied onto a Gamakatsu 8/0 SL12 big saltwater hook.
