Keys style pike fly

Hook: Mustad 3366, size 2/0

Thread: Chartruese, 3/0

Inner tail: Chartruese bucktail

Tail flash: 6 strands each of peacock and copper krystal flash

Tail: Two pairs of hackle, one yellow and one grizzly chartruese, tied in with the dull sides to the outside; grizzly hackles furthest out

Head/beak: Thread

Eyes: 3D prismatic

Head finish: 5 minute epoxy followed by Hard as Nails

This fly is a tarpon style pattern tied in colors to match yellow perch, a favorite food item for the pike in these parts. Although I haven't fished it yet, I'm sure that the splayed feathers will move plenty of water and get some attention. I'll probably try this in red and white too.
