Fly Candy

A pink and grey replot stinger mack (II). Total length 10" inches - 25cm. Definitely not for the in experienced caster and should be attached to nothing less than a 10wt line. Its going to be interesting to see how these articulated replot stingers fair this comming season here on the island. Big flies doesn't generally mean bigger fish here on the island.The last 4 yrs stats have shown that but am sure these will be perfect for post spawn pike and certainly for late autumn.

What I am going to do is tie up a much smaller version of these doubles using rabbit zonker strips instead of raccoon and shorter sub saddles. Maybe tie them around 100mm - 120mm long for pre spawn and summer usage.
