Fly Candy

Recieved a batch of the new range of Universal predator hooks from Partridge yesterday which I'll talk about towards the end of the week. Anyway I tied a couple of these hybrid bangers up last night on to them in a variety of different colours.

The difference with these is I used cream microbarb saddles instead of icelandic sheephair & Goat hair to extend the body. I've also decided that this will be the 1st fly I chuck once the ice has melted in the spring.

I added a couple of small sprigs of bucktail to the underneath of this fly which I don't do with my original bangers and also added a splash of red arctic fox for the gills and Bug-bonded a couple of eyes on which will give extra longevity to the fly. Total length 140mm
