  1. These are just more of my go-to pike and musky flies. On my mind so I thought I'd share. Basically a tandem hollow-deceiver with a few bells and whistles--er, I mean, eyes and rattles. There's also palmered marabou in front of the forward-most bucktail clumps and I've glued 3D eyes over weighted dumbbells. The forward hook is a 60* jig hook (6/0; rear is 5/0 straight shank). To augment action and hook-up ratio, I typically tie these with the rear hook pointed down since the jig hook will point up. They are very sparse to keep weight down and to increase motion and sink rate. The fish don't seem to have any problem "hearing" or "seeing" these flies despite my defiance of the bulky flared deer hair head (e.g. Beauford) trend. I tie these a little sloppy because I don't think the fish care and I usually fish tannic or muddy water. What you're seeing is a fresh-off-the-vise look, and after a swim, the bucktail tames a bit. Not so happy customers
