Project Sandeel is finished

These sandeels are for my private box. Everyone is a little bit different. Some are extra weighted, some are not. IMG_6913-1-2

Articulated Pike Streamer

Got some new cool materials for testing! Main topic: PIKE!

I will do some “a closer look at…” in the near future. Here is the first fly I’ve tied with some of the materials. A big, but very lightweight articulated pike fly. Even if it looks very big, it’s not as hard to cast as you might imagine.

Flatwing Tobis: Check!
I tied two of this flies 3 times. Tied it, cut it up, tied it, cut it up again, tied it a third time. I was just not satisfied with the result and I don’t put a “bad” fly in my box, because I know that I won’t fish it and I won’t give it away as a present. I just throw it in the trash after some years. Maybe the fish doesn’t give a damn, but if you don’t have faith in your fly, you won’t fish it the right way.
