March Guest Instructor: Peter Morse
Fly Being Tied: Fat Boy
This fly provides a framework for many variations Peter will exhibit (pre-tied) during the presentation.
The Fat Boy is a big-fish saltwater fly originally tied with barramundi in mind. It is a representation of round baitfish (mullet, pilchards, mackerel, hardyheads etc), rather than flat profile baitfish, herrings, sardines, etc.
You Will Need:
Gills: Large red or pink palmer chenille
Body: SF Blend, white for belly, overwing of seafoam or grey or light blue, pale colours are best.
Finish: Solarez Flex.
