Title: Fat head paddle tail
Post by: James Laraway on June 07, 2019, 09:35:28 AM
as you can see i have been messing about and created a monster....

Home made, detachable paddle tail ( on a spiral clip so i can change colours) made from a pilates band- this one is the zebra

rear hook has copper UV polar chenille and stacked marabou bloods

front hook has more UV chenille and stacked marabou and with a big head of roving wool mixed with Angelina fibre.

The big head will push LOTS of water to make the tail really swing....

cant wait to try it
