Flying Fly

Recommended Posts

In the :New Fly" thread we thoroughly discussed the Banjo Fly and the lure that inspired it. Now this...


When I mailed a Flying Lure to Tom on Monday, I knew I had to rush this one into production. He would get his version out before me if I did not hurry.


Here's the Flying Fly next to the Flying Lure (1/4 oz) that inspired it.




Drop it next to a dock and drop the rod tip to give it slack. It glides backwards. Cast to the edge of some pads or weeds and let it slide back under.

This 17 incher liked it this morning at 7:15 at my secret lake.




Seems to work OK.

it is the movement of the fly that often catches the fish and not the polished appearance of the fly or even the silhouette for that matter.


My kind of fly :D


But you did not mention the realistic colors--Magenta with a blue/purple tail. Matching the hatch is all important :blink:
