I've more luck hooking up using sabiki type assist hooks. Since I was bored at home yesterday, I decided to experiment and transform one of my assist hook into a fly. I figured if saltwater flies can hook up monsters on the surface, why not try it underwater with a jig. I'm not a fly angler and surely not a master in tying flies. This is what I came up with some stuff I got at home. It's not a work of art by any stretch of the imagination. It looks more like a fly only frankenstein would love. I think I need to add some sort of eyes. I made another one just to see the action underwater. I filled a bucket with water and started bobbing it up and down underwater. The action of the fur and flashabou looks so natural and enticing. I will surely try it out on my next trip.
