Green Butt Skunk Variation Fly Tying Video

In this video Tony ties a Green Butt Skunk variation. The flies design developed from wanting a “low water” tie with fast sinking qualities. You can certainly use a sinking tip with this pattern but a Scandi Head and a floating or Intermediate Poly Leader will also work great. The fly will get down below the surface in a hurry with a “Summer Fly” profile.

    Two dogs,
    Thanks for the kind words. I’m pretty fond of this fly, as I took my first North Umpqua Summer Steelhead on a GBS.
    Thanks again, Tony

    What was that tool you used to burn the fibers at the head of the GBS?
