Angel Hair Daredevle

This fly uses Capt. Ray's technique for tying in Angel fact, it's an Angel Hair baitfish tied for pike.

Hook: 3/0
Thread: Mono
Tail support: Short, sparse white Super Hair
Overwing/Underwing: Red and white Angel Hair, tied in to represent the classic Daredevle red and white spoon
Eyes: Large prismatic
Head: A dab of epoxy encompassing the eyes and whip finish

Overall fly length is about 6 inches.

I have reservations about how long these will last with pike, but I just had to try. I like how the Angel Hair baitfish flies fish in the salt, so I have to give them a fair shot in the sweetwater.
