You sure that head is big enough to float that shark hook? :)
 
Interesting morning on the tube today, so i'm going again tomorrow with another weighted fly on the intermediate line because i don't have a sink line yet! sketch-1534691714944.png sketch-1534691726764.png sketch-1534691741036.png Tried something new, couple tendons to stop the hook from hanging down on the stop, but it didn't work. Couple more build pics, oh it's a Vision Big Mama #6/0 hook & 55mm Partridge shank. sketch-1534691664267.png sketch-1534691687498.png sketch-1534691701346.png

Took this out this morning on the tube, combination of big fly with weight & a air catching Jumbo wiggle tail made it a bitch to cast! The same fly with out the weight is ok!
