  1. Quick to tie fly that I made and am having success with. Let me know if it works for you.

  2. What you need:

    size 6 hook

    red floss body

    dark then light pink boo

    mohair "egg"

    45 seconds.
     
  3. looks complex
     
  4. Truly is. :cool:
     
  5. Great looking fly, have you ever tried using Pink Bucktail under then Marabou over. It gives a great deal of action. For Dollies I do pretty well with bucktail. My most favorite material (if money does not matter) would be Artic fox spun into a dubbing rope; it’s the best for action and keeps a good form without collapsing under faster waters. What other colors have you been using and what system are you fishing with this patterns. I have found color real changes from system to system. Like Skagit Chums will take pink but every where else they take green and never pink. Just wondering?
     
  6. I have actually been using this pattern exculsively in Canada swung on a slimeline behind reds. It is well outperforming egg paterns(dead drift or swing). Don't know why, just does.

    I will give it a shot in Washington this weekend when I move back. Thanks for the suggestions.
