Default Re: The Official BIG STREAMER thread

Those are some great patterns you have there, all of which would surely have a place in my esox boxes.

One material I didn't see utilized in any of your patterns is bucktail. Other than flashabou, my number one material in my musky and pike flies is bucktail. If you can get your hands on some quality bucktail (which means having to go to the fly shops and taking each one out of the bag), you will like what you can do with it. It will also open up a broad range of new flies for you to tie. It's movement on big flies is nearly unbeatable, and is lightweight and easy to cast.

Check out this two part video for a good example of what I'm talking about.
