: A LARGE bucktail!!

Hi friends, here´s one of my favourite bucktails, its really large and work really great for big trout. I guess it may work for steelhead too. Never tried.
Its very light and, in a few ocassion, trout took it on top, yes...like a dry!

I called it "pajarito" (little bird)...crazy name for a fly tied with hairs......

Hook: Mustad 3665A #2
Thread: Black monocord 3/0
Tail: white bucktai, long.
Body: Rainbow flashabou (wrapped).
Third wing: yellow bucktail (as long as the tail)
Second wing: Orange over yellow bucktail.
Main wing: Black over orange bucktail.
Beard: White bucktail (beyond the hook)
Eyes: Painted.

Write for any question!

Good luck!!!

Beautiful work! I really like that fly. But I think you chose the wrong board to post it on, you need the tying board. Do you fillet this or cook it whole? How many portions do you get out of each fly? And what would make a nice side dish with it? Just kidding, it sure is a great looking streamer.
Slinger PS I may have to change the hook and try this in the salt!

That is a cool fly!

It looks like it is tied similarly to a Joe Brooks blond.

Nice tie!

I agree with Steve, but thinking maybe on a tube with different sets of colors for a nice Herring or Bunker profile.
