This fly is designed for large predatory species like pike and musky but of course it could be fished with confidence for a wide variety of fresh and saltwater species including almost anything that swims in the jungle.
These flies tied on articulated shanks are intended to flex sand show a. broad profile to the predator when the angler pauses in the strip retrieve. This fly is tied using only one trailer shank but it could be made even longer with the use of several shanks.
The color hues of this fly suggest a rather natural imitative rather than a wildly colored attractor combination – many large flies feature very bright colors, and such flies will be featured here on the blog in due time.
