The sky’s gray, it’s cold, it’s not allowed to fish for predators with mean teeth at the moment… what could you do to bring back some nice thoughts into your mind? Bring some colors on your tying desk! :-)
This colorful pattern makes me smile! I hope you smile as well! :-)
I tied some flash tubes for pikes in the past. They looked good, but nowadays there are special plastic tubes for pike with a really big diameter available, which makes it easier to get the wire leader through it. So I rebuild most of my tubeflies and used their materials to tie new ones, mostley the eyes, flash and hackles.
This is the result. I’m quite satisfied how Frankenstein looks now. ;-)
