Veverka Corsair Baitfish

Here is a copy of Veverka's baitfish or anchovie..... Cut corsair to desired length...then slip hook..hook first into the corsair tube, then push hook though...Put the hook in your vice and start to feed large saltwater flashabou though the tube so that there is amounts extending out both ends... I fold the flashabou to get it though easier.... tye down at the hook eye with mono thread... Cut excess corsair and flashabou and trim hook eye...use sodering iron to get close cut.... Cut folder flashabou at the tail and also cut excess flashabou about 1/2 inch into the tube so that your tie down does not bunch the flashabou up....Take a hackle feather and trim to desired shape of a fish tail and make sure to leave a 2 inch stem to push into the tail portion of the fly.... take fly off the vice and place a bodkin in the tail area , reverse the fly and place back into the jaws securing tail area with the help of a stiff bodkin...place the hackle tail into position and start tying down ...after 5 to 10 tight turns...slip the bodkin out gently and continue to tie down by spining the bobbin around the area. ...tie off..... place eyes in and make sure the eyes are approximatly the diameter of the width of the fly. Epoxy the front and the tie down portion at the tail.... then with an olive magic marker color the top portion of the fly.

Nice job, after reading your detailed instruction, I think I will try tying this fly, just two questions, what size hook are you using in that posted fly? and the diameter of the Corsair tubing/

Great ties, fellas.

Both look like they have the potential to be a killer flats pattern in downsized a bit
