These are tied on Size 1 hook

Swirlchaser writes:

" I tie these flies with mono because they get thrashed pretty hard.
1. Tie in bucktail and Flash at the bend of the hook (length is your preference)
2. Tie in hackle at the bend and wrap forward (I tie it in by the tip so the longer fibers of the base of the feather end up near the eye of the hook).
3. Tie in your foam 1/8" from the eye. Leave approximately 3/16" hanging over the eye.
4. At this point you need to bring the thread to the bend of the hook working through the hacklesop you don't lay it down.
5. Tie the foam down at the bend of the hook and tie off.
6. Fold the foam forward and tie down at the eye. I put some wraps on and whip finish UNDER the foam heads so they stand up. Cement and go fishing!"

This fly was built in 4 bunches:

Very cool stuff, I can't wait.

Tying instructions for both my flies can be seen in these videos.


As simple as it looks in the video, I actually struggled with parts of mine. Mostly getting the eyes to stay put.

"

The difference with mine is that I added a soft hackle collar. I recieved one like it in a swap awhile back and I loved it. It seems like suck a great idea and it really catches fish. Not just bass or panfish, but trout gobble them up also.

I submitted two for a few reasons. First I wasn't completely happy with my DH streamers. Even after tying 12 of them I think I still have work to do. I think I may try using a different glue on the head, something like softex or flexament. Also, they are pretty big and I didn't want the panfish people left out, also, I'm just pretty much enthused with the SHSSL (Local speak for soft hackle simi seal leach)
