Re: Spoonflies for Redfish
Yeah, I've made them up both ways. They get VERY heavy with the eyes, and it makes them tough to cast. I tied a few with aluminum hourglass style eyes. They seem to work in the bath tub, and are much lighter than the brass or lead eyes. I tie them in at the rear of the spoon. Over the weekend here we were all but snowed in, so I had lots of time to play. I found that the tail material makes all the difference in the world. Too stiff of material can either help or hinder, but its very tricky to control. Nice soft material, like flashabou, and crystal flash, seems to work the best.
