Fly Candy

This is a combination of Olive ostrich hurl silver FFF Flash black bucktail a couple of green grizzly microbarbs and some plum arctic fox for under the chin.


Think I'm going to fish with this tomorrow with Rowland from the States.Fishing was slow today and only several small jacks were caught and released. Pike are in that post spawn funk here around the island but with favourable moon phases in place things are going to change.

Hey mate - Simon where did u obtain the microbarbed saddles in the nice sharp colors? Are they "home colored" or bought like this? It's often damn hard to come around some nice quality flatwing saddles in bright colored grizzly...
