Fly Candy - Musky madness

More musky madness from my vise. After tying up the last batch of Musky flies I was asked by a chap in the Netherlands to tie him up a set as well.The only criteria was they needed to be slightly shorter around 180 cm (7" - 8" inches) and needed to have a bit of weight added to them as he wanted to fish with them in slightly deeper water.

Again it a tandem rig but with an added heavy pair of dumbbell eyes tied onto the front of the head.
The tail is a combination of black and pink saddle patches,Fluoro pink bucktail,Fluoro pink fine twist hair and some black raccoon zonker.

I followed the same routine with materials along the main hook where I made a collar of black raccoon zonker then pink bucktail and then tightly packed a big bulbus head of pink then black deer hair. The only thing wrong with this fly is I wont be fishing with it this season. Click images for larger view!
