Fly Candy

I've been tying up several dozen different colour combinations of tube bunnies this last week in preparation for the Swedish fly fair. This one I've used Red raccoon zonker for the tail and added White and grizzly microbarb saddle hackles then dubbing looped grey raccoon fur for the head and added a silver cone to finish it off.

This one has a white raccoon zonker strip for a tail then added grizzly microbarb saddle hackles.Then tied on 30 or so yellow ostrich hurl feathers and then dubbing looped white raccoon fur for the head and added a silver cone to finish it off. These are one of my favourite flies to fish with,and contrary to belief after the second false cast they are extremely light to cast with.

Very nice Simon!!

I especially like the one with the ostrich hurl. Those Ostrich feathers look quite long compared to the ones I normally buy. Roughly how long are they,if you dont mind me asking?
