There are only so many ways to fry an egg, right? Patterns have been retied in a different color and have been "recreated". Not so, here, just a new twist.
Some years ago, I learned a pattern that caught fish well in my home waters. It was called the spun deer hair slider bug. It was shared by a fly fisherman who is no longer with us, His name was Kenny, better known as 10X10.
It has been reworked to fit smaller fish. I have also modified it's long tail, so as to make a smaller immitator. Some others have become wide profile flys. Short maribu tails work well, and are accomplished by removing the maribu from the stem, and tying it in as you would hair. Artic Fox and Rabbit have also been used in these flys to vary the lenth and properties.
As you can see by the spool af thread, these flys are all about 2" long tied on #1 standard lenth hooks.
Fish them slow, fish them fast,
I CAN"T WAIT TO FISH "EM!
