Charity auction flies

This is more a vintage pike fly than anything else and am sure after the 1st couple of pike it will be completely mullard but with this I used a clump of Peacock hurl feathers,a peacock eye feather and 3 red sparkle xmas pipe cleaners.

I started by tying on at the back the peacock eye feather. Then wrapped 3 red xmas tinsel pipe cleaners all along the hook shaft to the eye. Then added 15 or so peacock hurls as far forward as I could. Stuck a couple of contrasting yellow/silver eyes on.....jobs a good en!

I've fished with similar flies Mathias and they did catch me fish. They don't last long but one could tie a strip of rabbit zonker on the end once the feather gets ripped up.This fly is probably more suited to being framed.

This is such an amazing entry and I love to read more of it so that I will be able to look over and have it as an inspiration for further articles to write about when it comes to updates on fly fishing and it's pros and cons too. I do hope you will get to visit our official website and let us know what you think about it. Here is the link
