[report]Getting pounded by the rain on the forgotten coast. So we spent the afternoon drinking beer and tying a few flies. This might make a few cringe, but at least the view is nice.

Hook – Mustad 2/0 2XH/4XL
Thread – Whorvis Saltwater/Bass size G in White
Beer – Redhare Gangway IPA
Materials – White & Chartreuse bucktail, Hackle, and cross cut bunny strips.

Image

Wrap small amounts of white Bucktail evenly around the back of the hook.

Image
Image

Repeat with Chartreuse.

Image

Image

And again with white.

Image

Continue up the the hook with white hackle.

Image

Image

Image

Cover my Shitty wraps with another layer of white buck tail.

Image

Cut diagionally at the end of the bunny strip.

Image

Tie in the bunny strip.

Image

Wrap to the front and tie off.

I'm finding the slammed car trunk lid provides more livid, and a wider palette, of colors.
Very nice fly.
