He proudly showed the flies to his mother and announced he is going into business selling flies. I love his company name but I think his five dollar a piece price tag was a little steep! It will be the best fifteen dollars I ever spent if he keeps his interest in fly tying.
Hook: 2X long nymph hook (size 8-12)
Tail: Pheasant tail
Abdomen: Green Ice Dub
Thorax: UV Pink Ice Dub
Hackle: Pheasant rump feathers
Thread: 3/0 black (heavy yes, but he doesn't break it as often)
These flies should tear up the bluegill and crappie next spring, hell I bet they would do a number on trout if they were scaled down in size.
