STRIPER FLY or NOT
I decided to do up a fly I could see . Figured to put it here as a cross over lure. Striper or very very big trout.

Well the poodle has a baboon butt on it now. Naw just kidding. Its a piece of short strung marabou of of one of them girly costumes . Don't ask I know what you are thinking . No I did not get it in a house of ill repute. Nor do I have a pole set up in my house other than the one I take to the lake.

I say striper fly and knot. Cool

Would try it out on the Tennessee River below the Chickamauga Lake Dam in Hixon, TN. I think I'd need a cannon of a fly rod to launch it though. Wink

Cannon fly rod and full body armor for me! Big Grin Beat-up


Would be interested to see that thing wet and the fluff slimmed down... is the white body maribou?

Looks big enough to be able to cast with a ultra lite spinning outfit .... Might have to use it with down riggers for trolling for stripes (Kings, Spanish & etc.) ...
What size is the hook ??

Toughen it up some with a little epoxy and let the Saltwater boys have at it.

All right
