Mini Bucktail Flatwings

At the Nauset outing this wekend I spoke with Todd Murphy and looked thought his flybox and he showed me this type of fly. This should be good on the flats in high sun. It a delicate fly tyed with blended Bucktail, pearl braid and a tail of thin Hackle. I did as Todd suggested and blended the bucktail with three or four stands of one color then another...up to 5 or six different colors... On the Chartruese fly I blended 5 colors,white ,with four different shades of Chartruese Bucktail, including basic yellow..The eyes are small jungle cock... He commented that big hooks were the way to go and I tyed on short 1/0 new Verivas hooks... The gap in the new Verivas on a 1/0 would be like a 3/0 on another hook. They are also on short shanks... I think a perfect little fly for those days when you don't want alot of flash and want to work at not spooking fish.
