Friday Night Flies – Mylar Bucktail Fly
Messing around with some Bucktail and Mylar tubing at the vise. I know that bucktailing is a popular method of trolling in British Columbia, both in Freshwater and Saltwater. I’ve got a lot to learn when it comes to Bucktailing but I assume you have to start with a super fishy Bucktail. I’ve adapted a few tricks from a popular fly I’ve tied for Cutthroat called the Pemby Mylar Minnow, It’s deadly so I’m hoping this pattern will be as deadly.
