Fly Candy

This is a multi combination fly similar, to the feathered fur streamers I tie. I started by tying a 100 mm strip olive raccoon zonker strip at the back of the hook. The palmered on a small dubbing loop of purple raccoon zonker. Then added 25 -30 olive ostrich Hurls. The added a clump of white then red bucktail facing forward around the hook, then bent them back and tied under them to give volume.

Then added 25 - 30 black ostrich hurl feathers. Lastly I added green & white grizzly hackles. Stuck on a couple of silver holographic eyes and bug-bonded together.

The fly looks awesome. What feathers are you using? Do you have some tight arse tips where to get them?
