Fly Candy - Replot stinger mack (II)

The natural thing fly tyers like to do is improve on exsisting designs, so I've taken my replot stinger to the next level by adding a tandem trailing rigged tail which has extended the body a further 5" inches. I generally tie the shorter version in either chartreuse,pink or Olive but I went with a red/white combo this time.

I used arctic fox this time instead of raccoon, as well as white,brown and hot orange grizzy microbarb saddles to give extra movement and volume. Total length of the fly is 12" inches long.

I'm off to the Stockholm fly fair this weekend so for all you Swedes that are thinking of going, stop by the tying street and Say hello.
