flees

ulf over at ulfhagstron blog came up with the idea of using craft fur to replace zonker strip on a fly and created a rather ex looking fly , so i thought id do one as well but my craft fur seems to be shorter in length than ulfs so what i did was simply add a collor of maribou feather and this is the result and quite certain it will catch pike



so while i was experimenting i decided to put to use some of the foam that ken caspey over at pike adventures sent me to play with and came up with this little epoxy baitfish i say little its tied on a 6/0 long shank hook so its BIG and i really look forward to trying this out enjoy and thanks ken .

hi simon body is made from foam ken sent me like a loco foam but with glitter and miles better , the tail is just black bucktail varnished with clear varnish , once dried just cut to shape , the fin is just a bit of old black foam cut to shape and stuck to the back , the whole lot is given a thin coat of 5 min epoxy and job done

all the best
