First shot at this style fly to use for tiger musky. Started off trying to tie an articulated, body tube bulkhead style fly inspired by a Gunner Brammer video I watched. Well, in the end, no bulk head or body tubing because come to find out, I suck at tying those :). I’ll have to practice this winter. I thought this articulated frankenfly potentially came out fishable though. We’ll have to see how it looks in the water.

Dry and wet..

Those are great. My grandson thought mine needed eyes like dad's bass flies. 20201123_141331.jpg
