Fly Candy

Not sure what to call this, all I know is I'll be using this down in Merikarvia next week. Started by tying on some red n green grizzly microbarb onto the back of the hook. Then added some red then green bucktail and spun it around the hook. then a couple of red guinea fowl feathers on either side of the hook shaft.

Then some more green,black and red bucktail. Added a small dubbing loop of red raccoon fur. Then finished it off with a couple of yellow guinea fowl feathers. Added a couple of eyes and Bug-bonded the head area.

I tied a few up with similar colors lately and really like it. Nice work as usual.

Cheers lads...much appreciated. Do dig this colour scheme. Maybe could have done with a splash more yellow...maybe with the next one.
