    Default Hollow Fleye


    Ordinarily on a fly like this I'd use more clumps with sparser amounts of bucktail to create a smoother profile with less gaps in the profile, but wanted to keep things less confusing for the tutorial. Feel free to experiment, here are a couple in different made up color palettes: "bruise" (purple, blue, black and red), "lemon lime" ( chartreuse, olive, green and yellow) and "mullet" (white tan gray and light blue)



    Again think of this as a tying technique you can incorporate into your tying on a variety of patterns as in the "Sore Thumb" posted in this forum. It's a flatwing streamer with a spun deerhair head that uses a "hollow" collar to add shape to the fly without adding bulk.
