Thanks for the input! This is my second fly I’ve tied so it’s been a kind of trial and error deal. Hope to get it down a little better after one or two more and a few beers😏Looks good. The only recommendation I have, is to tie it hook point up next time(mono eyes).
thanks! I just been watching a lot of YouTube and decided to take on the challenge. Purple and black has been working really well for me for catching reds here in Galveston, TX. Hoping to catch one on a fly I tyed myselfHoseMonkey, Your fly will indeed ride hook point up, but the eyes as you have them will be on the bottom of the fly. If you flip the fly over and tie in the mono eyes the same way, you should be good.
If that's just your second fly, you are way ahead of where I was in tying flies. My second fly was trashed....literally. I would still fish this one as is!
I tie a redfish-crack fly very similar in color to this and it slams here in SE LA. I recommend throwing a few orange rooster saddle feathers under the fur and trimming the EP fibers a little more, that's what I do and I think it swims a lot better.
