Fin Clip

Getting ready to pack up the shop again to head up to the Huron River Fly Tying Symposium up in Canton MI tomorrow. Got home from work and knocked out a bunch more flies to get in the mail before I hit the road. Also started on an order I will get out on Monday. The flies pictured here are part of that order; they are a 7" version of a Ted Kraimer fly called a Fin Clip...big and meaty. This is a fly best fished on a full sinking line, I like to do so with a SA Long so I have a 50 foot head to help control the fly. Slow down the casting stroke due to wind resistance and bring it back in with short erratic strips between pauses...and hold on.
