This is the last of the exhibit flies destined for the FFFT Expo next month. Black Ostrich marabou blended with Grey bucktail tied in hollow fleye style. I gave the fly a splash of colour with two reg grizzly hackles along its flank and a grey raccoon chin. 12" of meaty goodness

Another exhibit fly for the FFFT Expo next month. Again I used a Flymen fishing co articulated shank for the tail and abstained from attaching a stinger hook. This has a mix of Black n white bucktail tied in hollow fleye stylie and I used extra long Peacock hurl to give the fly volume and added length. Silver krinkle flash was added sparingly......less is more as they say. The forehead is Olive raccoon and the chin is white raccoon.

 Even at 14" long you can barely feel its weight to hand. I have one more for tomorrow's post which makes up the set.

Tied up some exhibit flies for the FFFT Expo next month. This one is 12 inches long and tied only with Ostrich hurl and Chartreuse and Olive Bucktail and a splash of peacock krinkle flash. It has an articulated shank attached but I left out the stinger hook.

I really like to use Ostrich hurl these days on large flies like these. You can create a hell of a lot of volume and length with minimal weight. Granted its not known for its longevity but if it catches several fish before it has to be retired then its done its job in my eyes.

The one great thing about fly fishing is that after a while nothing exists of the world but thoughts about fly fishing
