a Ray's Fly (sorta') with a trist...

...tested positive for steroids...

This is a DualTube BigEyedMutant tied with three hackle feathers, splayed buck tail, peacock herl, and some flash...foil eyez and epoxied head...
...'standing by to stand by for a snelled hook to be firmly but gently inserted into the waiting junction tube...

Locked and loaded and anticipating the Phall Phestivities on Nauset Beach...

That pink underneath the throat is a great idea.
And the Mercury dime is a great touch (haven't
seen one of those in a long time)

Thanks for the kind words...

Compliments are always appreciated!
To get a WOW from the Beach Ninja is more than I hoped for...

The coin was inserted to render scale...
I've got WAY too many from a previous life...
The Mercury is a classic and my favourite but the quarter sized BigEyed bird runs a close second...

By the way...a little insight/advise please...
If it's just the colour and almost nothing else is similar to the Ray's Fly...
and, as far as I can tell, my DualTube design is somewhat unique...
and since I've never seen/heard of anything quite like it...
Does that mean that I might be able to call it a Pete's Fly?
and consider the other DualTubePhlyz as Pete's Mutant Variations (PMV's)???
Just curious...

To tell the truth I never saw a resemblance to a rays fly other than the color kinda... the design trumps color anyway, it's a very unique pattern. Aside from it's obvious atlantic gamefish appeal it would be deadly on pacific coho salmon in the saltchuck and the tube would put the hook back far enough to reduce short strikes.

The tube would also mean more positive connection with hardtails on the strike just as they have started to show on Nantucket Sound.

Put a dot behind the eye somehow if you want to disavoy any relation

That is an awesome fly Pete, will have to shrink it and plagiarise it for the lickle fishies we get over here.

I do not see much of a ray's fly in there. A ray's fly is tied on the top half of the hook with no material on the bottom. Also ray's fly does not have any hackle feathers in it, just bucktail. I also see yours as representing fuller bodied bait like bunker or herring and not just a silverside pattern like ray's fly is.

It is totally Pete. I like it!

"Gray's Fly"

allow me to say these pics do NOT do these flies justice. not even close.

while down on the pharside, in what was perhaps a lapse in security, i was allowed onto the area 61 compound, albeit blindfolded and escorted both on my trip in and out. suffice to say there is some unreal R&D going on in there. the "Gray's Fly" being no exception - the brilliant result of some ingenious thinking, sensitive fine tuning, and lots of testing. i was able to get a sneak peek into the manufacturing process and even a live test. and by "live" test, i mean LIVE test. the damn things look real! when released into the OWCS (Open Water Current Simulator...aka the hot tub with jets and moon lights turned on), i'll be damned if a blue heron and one or two birds of prey didn't swoop down to snatch what they though was dinner. heck, i even felt inclined to snatch one out, fillet it up, and throw it on the grill with some lemon and butter. the combination of near neutral buoyancy and perfect attitude/swim-angle result in something unlike i've ever seen. next time i'm down, i'll see if i can sneak a video camera in; it will be the only way to do them justice.

one final note about my visit. between the massage therapy systems, outdoor fireside chats, homemade all natural sorbet, and girls my visit felt a little more like a visit to club med at times than a visit to area 51...i mean 61...the covert R&D center that it is. hospitality was second to none. can't wait to go back, although i'm pretty sure they're realizing right about now, "hey wait!? that polack from last week doesn't have clearance!". anyway, it was fun while it lasted.
