Fly Tying #7 …..two great options for adding flash
The Baitfish Emulator is a mix of thick and thin shimmering mylar fibers that can be bunched together to for any part of the fly or simply applied like a hackle. In addition you can cut the fibers off the braid and place them in a dubbing loop. Using the later approach allow you to form all kinds of heads and bodies. See Mr. T below which is my go to pattern for Colorado Wipers
Hook: TMC 8089 size 12
Eyes: Bead chain size medium secured with super glue and topped with Tuffleye, an epoxy alternative, or epoxy.
Core Body: Saltwater Yak Hair in White plus 1/2 dozen strains of Ice Wing tied in behind the eyes. White bucktail can be used in place of the Yak which can be hard to find.
Wing: Steve Farrar’s Flash Blend in wild olive or color to suit. This other synthetic wing material may be used with or without flash.
