Can't Fish So I Decided To Design a New Fly
Can't go fishing, because my mother is having a very difficult time with her health and I'm pretty sure any day now she will have to go into the hospital. So I decided that I wanted to create another fly of my own.
I'm calling it Tom's Poxiback Kamikazi. What do you all think?
AFF 3761 size 14
1/8" Gold Bead
Black 8/0 Uni-Thread, .015 Lead Free Round wire (optional).
Fly Tyer's Dungeon (FTD) Mr. Peacock Dubbing in Peacock
Black Thin Skin with pearl mylar tinsel and covered with Clear Cure Goo (5 Minute Epoxy would be perfect also). Flashabou is perfect for the tinsel. I used FTD HTO Flash, because its exactly the same think as Flashabou only much cheaper.
Ringneck Pheasant Tail fibers
Small Copper Wire
Ringneck Pheasant Tail Fibers
Gold Goose Biots pointed downward
Attention New Fly Fishers and those just wanting to improve- Join a Fly Fishing Club. They have classes on every aspect of fly fishing for beginners to advanced for free or cheaper than offered elsewhere. Some offer mentor programs. You will make friends with other fly fishers. Clubs often have outings in which members pay special group rates for guides or to fish prime private access areas.
