Hollow Fleyes

Hello to all....

An unmistakable itch has set in through out my body and I have begun to spend extended hours at the vise filling my boxes for the season that will soon be upon us. Here a hollow that I spun up the other night (I finally purchased a digital camera so I can post some of my flys).

This pattern without the peacock herl was stellar for me last year. Great profile and they are not bulky in the least bit..... They shiver in the water even when you don't strip 'em. Thank you very much Bob Popovics!

Hope everyone is well, looking forward to migration fish on the cape.

Aaron

Aaron, nice looking stuff! I particularly like the top one, I may have to do some of those. Looks like it`s simple enough, even for me. How`s life in the great white north?

.... The bucktail hollow fly goes along well with what Sean was saying about impressionistic flies.

"I think this is one of the main reasons I am a big fan of impressionistic flies. I think we as anglers are often too concerned with how the fly looks to us and to compound things often compare it to how the bait looks outside of the water. I think action, size and then color are really the most important factors (there are obviously exceptions). Figure out what thing triggers the bite and then replicate that not neccessarily the exact look of the bait."

Sean[/QUOTE]


When tied sparse they have great profile without being so gaudy. Too much bucktail kills the pattern. My favorite combo fo the fly is White w/ chartruse & light purple.

Life in the frozen north is good, skiing and tying flies......
