Fly Candy - Musky madness

This monster musky fly only has one objective and thats to attract a monster fish. At 15" inches long its a combination of fur,rubber,flash,bucktail and deer hair.

I started with tying on two thin strips of yellow barred rabbit zonker onto the articulated stinger hook. Then a couple of clumps of black bucktail spun around the hook shaft. Then added 2 black saddles on either side then another clump of bucktail. Then covered that with a yellow/white rubber muppet. Then finished of the tail with a contrasting clump of yellow bucktail


The main body tied onto the front hook has eight black saddles splayed outwards interdispursed with bucktail along the shank. A generous clump of fluoro chartreuse super fine tinsel was added just behind the collar. The head is tightly spun deer hair trimmed diver style
