Simple slider (swap entry)
My deer hair swap flies have been done for awhile, but it's time to get them into the archive...
Hook: Mustad 3366, size 2/0
Thread: Yellow, 3/0
Tail support: Chartruese bucktail
Tail flash: 4 strands each of copper and peacock krystal flash
Tail: One matched pair each of yellow hackle and chartruese grizzly hackle
Collar: Spun yellow deer hair
Head: Spun and trimmed yellow deer hair
This fly seems to fish better when it gets a bit water logged and rides an inch or two under the surface. It still pushes a wake and the strikes are still very visual, but for whatever reason in my experience it fishes better "wet". For that reason, I don't treat it to float (but your mileage may vary).
