Fly Candy

Some saltwater fry hot of the vice. Tails are a mix of bucktail and a couple of peacock hurl feathers for lateral lines.

Once the tails have been tied off I then wrap 3 or 4 strands of holographic tinsel along the hook shaft to build it up. I then added Cherry red 4 strand flat floss to the front of the fly near the hook eye and tie off. Then I add Gold/orange 4 strand flat floss to the rear of the fly. Stuck a couple of gold 3D eyes on and bug-bonded the whole head area

This one has white bucktail under belly followed by yellow for the flanks then turquoise finished off with a couple of ostrich hurl feathers.

This one has white bucktail under belly then pink for the flanks and then black with some ostrich hurl feathers for lateral lines.

This one has a white bucktail underbelly then I added some baby pink for its flank then some light blue bucktail and peacock hurls for lateral lines
