Default Articulated barely legal

I've been getting into tying big flies lately. This is an articulated barely legal with a fish skull head.

Those are fun flies to fish and tie. You did a real nice job with that one.

Nice, you'll get some action with that puppy. Bet it moves like a belly dancer. I just recently got a couple of packs of those helmets they make a great streamer.

nice ! I have better luck using an octopus hook as the trailer. it shortens the fly a bit. more strikes/hook ups for me. I clip the front hook as well for ease of release.
