    Default Panfish and Bass Swap, Spring 2011

    Thanks all participants, a great looking bunch of flies.

    More recipes will be posted for flies on Monday.

    by Swirlchaser

    These are tied on Size 1 hook

    " 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!"

    Fire Tiger Hollow Fleye
    by peregrines

    A short shank Eagle Claw 254 Size 2 saltwater hook used here
    Thread: Danville Flat Waxed Nylon used here because of it's strength since you'll want to crank down on the bucktail
    Body is built using successive bunches of bucktail tied in tips forward, then tips are swept back and locked in place with thread.
    See step by step here: Hollow Fleye

    This fly was built in 4 bunches:
    from rear
    1st bunch: yellow was tied in on bottom of shank, chartreuse on top
    2nd bunch: repeat above
    3rd bunch: Orange bucktail on bottom, yellow on sides, chartreuse on top
    4th bunch: Black bucktail

    Very cool stuff, I can't wait.

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

    [ame=""]Diamond Hair Streamer[/ame]

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

    [ame="]Simiseal Leach (Mine is actually a soft hackle SSL)[/ame]

    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)
