Trying Something Different

Post  Charlie G. on 3/31/2012, 7:45 pm

I saw a video on putting rattles in flies on youtube, so I thought lets give it a try. Also woke up at 3am and couldn't go back to sleep so I sat down at the vice and did some tying.

I put a glass rattle into a piece of mylar tubing. Tied it off and added a drop of zap-a-gap.



Then tied on some bucktail to make an extended tail to be tied to the hook shank.



I then tied it onto the hook shank and finished off the fly as any other. As you can see the rattle is hidden and if you lightly shake the fly you can hear it rattle. We'll see if it helps at all.
As Old Man Bob and I concluded if there's fish in the area and they are hungry or enticed they will hit almost anything.

And here are some pictures of the finished flies.
