Sailfish flies!

This is the first of four tandem rigs tied specifically for the boys at WILDFLIES for their Kenya sailfish trip at the end of the month. The trailing tail is a combination of pink & white chinese cock hackles splayed outwards,pink and white bucktail and a decent clump of pink flash.

With the main body I used the same materials except I layed the cock hackles facing inwards and added two clumps of the white ostrich hurl which I'd plucked from my fathers feather duster a few weeks back.

Total length 13" inches long tied onto a 6/0 Gamakatsu sl12 big game saltwater hook.
