Default Re: What have you been tying today?

Here's a bass slider/ deer hair Sneaky Pete I tied this weekend. Its tied on a TMC 8089 size 6 hook; I trimmed it so its not too large in the hopes it would work for both smallmouth and largemouth bass. I like the look of this fly, we'll see if the bass do.... The rear of the fly is tied with darker chartreuse body hair, the front with lighter belly hair. As usual with my deer hair flies, it has its flaws, you can see I didn't get the black nose quite right, the hair didn't spin evenly around the hook. And the tail hair is probably too long. Oh well, they're fun to tie and I'm looking forward to fishing them this spring. Tying these gets me fired up to fish.
