Fly Tying and Slurping and Burping

the Slurp and Burp Worm: its as if a mouse, a beaver and a wild and wooley, rattling hillbilly mind and body-melded themselves to a hook. what’s not to like ?

more than just a nifty bass and whatever other species that likes hybrid foods fly, this is one the most well explained tying tutorials i’ve seen in a long while. Pat Cohen goes the extra mile and this is well worth setting aside seven and a half minutes to observe. geez, this is the first fly i’ve ever seen that has a beaver tail, i love it ! enjoy !

 

the Freaky Frog

too cool to not tie up a few for your own fishing, these little creatures have all the right elements to entice, notably with the weighted butt this should not only gurgle, splash and wiggle but also bob back and forth: destined to catch more than a few frog-eaters.
be sure to tie a few more and cut off the hook so your little ones can play with them in the bath. enjoy !
