flesh pics




A simple and very effective flesh fly.

Eyes optional- lead or whatever suits the water.
Tail- rabbit strip
Body- rabbit strip

I tie these two ways.
1
Tie in eyes or not.
Tie rabbit strip in at mid point on hook shank
Wrap forward of eyes.
Tie off.
2
Tie in eyes or not
Tie in rabbit strip at head.

thats it.whip a dozen off in no time.
I use heavy wire hooks for these usually.
Use rabbit in various shades of
Tan
Ginger
Gray
natural brown/gray
washed out pinks

The darker natural gray is very cool as the hide stays quite light
and the resultant fly looks like a piece of skin coming down the current.
Dark on one side light on the other.

Dollies/bulls and steelies like em.

Have fun
