Fat head paddle tail
« 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



it aint no dry fly that for sure...
