Fly Candy


Having never fished with this colour combination before I thought it would be good to have a few ready for the autumn. I'll probably fish these raccoon bunnies either at dusk or dawn as I'm certain they appear as a rather dark silhouette under the surface anyway. For my own perspective It'll be interesting to see which colour combo is more effective than the other. Sure, as with all fishing,there are hundreds of variables one has to consider that will effect how well they fish, time of day, water temp, water depth, weather conditions, colour of fly, abundance of fish the list goes on but my money is on the bottom one for some reason!

I'd pick the bottom one also.

I always drift toward a darker head with a light body, especially for pike. Very nice tie.

I also use to tie a darker head,don´t have a reason for it.
Anyway,nice tie.
Don´t know if it´s the light or what but the purple looks very bright,much brighter then usual.
are you using Eumer´s Raccoon strips?

djuza: yes mate I have a whole pelt of the purple from the eumer factory. It is lighter than a darker purple but goes darker once wet!
