Bucktails, it dont hurt to be new at something. You got the hardest part done. Ya got started. Ya mentioned Pike and Bass. I love to do these guys with top water stuff. My favorite is a hair mouse tied by spinning deer hair with a slim piece of deer skin for a tail. Deer hair floats well. Keep up the work and keep us informed.

It's done with body hair. Body hair is fatter and hollow. When You tie on big chunks of it, it flairs way out so you can shape it. I have become pretty good at it, so if you want to see how it's done, just let me know.

Buck, check out Dans bug. Notice how he even tied it weedless. Dan, that's a beauty. If that wont catch a fish then you aint fishin it right or the fish all went home. Buck, fishin something like that needs to be done with a short choppy retrieve. A twitch if ya will. Imagine willows along the shore line with bird nests in em. A baby bird falls to the water while learning to take his first adventure. He hits the water and you can imagine the comotion he makes. If there's anything in the water below he'll be a meal for some big old bass or pike or even a channel cat. Try a baby bird pattern if your lookin for the big boys. Grasshoppers are good also. I love it when the water errupts.

Holy cow thats impressive. That is a work of art right there and I dont see how that thing couldn't get gobbled up by some big predator. And I knew that it couldnt have been bucktail it seemed to skinny but had no idea that the body hair is hollow I will keep that in mind.

Tight lines, Bucktail

Thanks I was wondering if it was more like a popper due to that lip or what so I cant wait to make a run at this. I can wait to get some of this stuff done spring is right around the corner and I am itching to get out and start chasing some hogs.

That one was tied for Smallies so it's just Sally Hansen's hard as nails. On the Pike version I tie, I use 5 minute epoxy. They are harder on stuff than Bass are. By the way Bucktail, I can teach you how to do those. It's not that hard. Shoot me a PM with your phone number and a good time to call if you want to give it a shot.

Rapid Eddy, I checked, no PM, try and resend it. It seems to have vanished into cyber oblivion.

It is a blast, so much so that it could very well become a seperate hobby. I love it.

Very nice deerhair bugs there Dan. I didn't even know you can make color schemes like that. Must be a sad sight when a pike breaks off though...all that time on the bench gone in a silvery green flash.
