The benifit of having a webfeeder installed to this blog is that I'm able to track every reader that visit these shores. Many are from fly fishing or fly tying forums where someone has posted an image with link of one of these flies and what's struck me is how unbelievably negative the fly fishing fraturnity can be. With the advent of google translate I can follow practically any forums disgussion wherever from in the world. But more on forums & why I don't partake in them in an up and coming post.
These flies are tied for a reason, to attract and catch big fish which they do. They aren't supposed to be cast 25m with 9# rod. they are cast 15m with a 12" 12# rod at monster musky by fly fisherman that live for the sport and have one goal in mind to try and break the world musky record with a fly and to do that they say you need monster flies to get them interested which I'm glad to oblige in tying for them. Sure I've never fished for Musky before but you can't tell me that Pike wouldn't want to eat this monster flapping around on the surface.
This beast is 16" inches long and is a combination of reindeer fur,bucktail,white n brown schlappen feathers,white microbarbs & a spun deerhair head.
