Fly Candy

The Bluedun baitfish trio

This one has a mix of red, brown,black & gold fine tinsel tied over the red & black bucktail.

I like to add more white bucktail for its flanks which helps the tinsel from wrapping itself around the hook bend. I'm going to be tying more with bucktail heads next but I liked the big 12 mm rattle eyes for these ties so as to give just a slight bit of buoyancy to the front of the fly which will hopefully give it an undulating motion through the retrieve....hopefully!
