tied this big fella for the toothy critters

Image

A real handful...

Image

Image

Image

theres about 20 sections of knotted nylon super hair hidden within to hopefully hold any big gar should they be interested......

Image

and a waggy tail for a little extra kick.....

Image

this monster is going in my "big boy" box when I get home....

Nice for sure. Meaty. That is a beast. I am pretty sure I couldn't cast it.

What are you coating the heads with?

Brad....most of my gar flies are nearly as big....and I can pitch them easy enough with a 7 wt. I got me a 10' 10 wt stick for X-mas.....should do the job. They're not heavy like you'd think and cast surprisingly well.....even Aaron could throw em' :D

Good stuff Tom. I've been messing around with some baitfish emulator, it's makes for some pretty cool flies

Ain't no way you'll find me casting that thing without a helmet and Kevlar vest on unless maybe I tied it to a surf rod.
You white folks is nuts! :mrgreen:
