Hi Yank - very helpful posts- I am getting psyched to try tying one of your assassins. Don't know when I'll get on the water, but it looks like a great fly to get back to the salt.. - Neil
Our pupp got into my wifes crochting stuff.. While cleaning it up I found what looks like trilobal material. I'll try and post a pic. it is chart/yellow/lime/orange mixed!!!
There really is a big difference in ostrich plum grades..the good stuff is surprisingly duarble..
The picture of two assasins on first post shows one tied hook up, one hook down..
Is the hook down plastic eye and the hook up lead?
If yes, the hook up version could be tied with a piece of foam (or one of them clear plastic 'cups' to make a gurgler version..
Bye the way I am on TF all the time and there is a core of great guys willing to share their expertise (like here).
