Fly candy

Here's a new Olive lazy boy I tied up the other day for an order. Has a dahlberg diver head in Chartreuse and white. a length 120mm olive raccoon zonker strip tied on to the back of the hook. A large collar of white bucktail and some grizzly crazy legs.

You can fish this with a floating line but I far prefer to use a slow sinking Intermediate with this fly as you get a great undulating movement as it gets retrieved back. The head pushes a hell of a lot of water while the tail gives off some wicked eel like movement.

The grizzly crazy legs are always a good addition to any pike fly just for that extra bit of movement. Probably one of my favourite flies to fish with over the last couple of years.
