pictures of my stiffys

calm down girls its not what you think ive long had the idea of geting a fly to work just like a glidebait , (the things the plastic chuckers use) , i have come very close to perfecting it before. now i think i have finally done it the stiff flies below are tied on 5/0 sakuma mantas and are around 7 inchs long and the best bit they are very light and very aero dynamic so casting even on the windiest days should not be a problem as is using them on floating , inti or sinking lines ill be working on mark 2s very soon which will have a rattle chamber inside enjoy ..........dave

Those are cool. Are they epoxy minnows?

hey papa no there done by stroking in loon soft head into the fiber towards the tail just coats the fly and gives it a nice profile

Cool! Those are nice! i'm just not sure about the color....(kidding) Barracuda would like them if they had some sparkly bits in there.

Dave,

i was looking at your other site and have to tell you, your saltwater flies are the dogs dangly bits. Lots of great ideas and it's obvious that you're quite an accomplished fly tier.
