Deer hair Rapala

My deer hair version of a jointed rapala and a articulated Zara spook. I have a short video of the "rapala" tie in the water on my facebook page if you wish to see it. I could not load it here. Thanks...

I once tried to tie a deer hair Rapala, with a plastic lip. What a mess that turned out to be.

But yours looks good.

Now lets see you tie the fly equivalent of a Mepps spinner. :-o

Haha, Thank you Dwight! I see your dare, but must draw the line at using blades for flyfishing...

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
