Toadfish/Blennies

Taking inspiration from Blue Dun's brilliant tie of a New Zealand "Bullie" tied up something along the same lines in an attempt to imitate Toadfish or Blennies, for my upcoming trip over to Big Pine Key in May.

Jonny,

 

Yes I agree, he does looks a little sorry for his selfwink.gif

 

Nearly spot on with the materials, Fleece, a tiny bit of root beer angel hair, (Toadfish/Blennies are dull 'orrible things) and for the tail, I tried out EP fibres, and Congo Hair, but due to the size of the fly, they were both a little coarse, and didn't create much movement. Then tried out some EP silky fibres, and when tank tested, whilst of course there is no movement in the head area, the tail really wiggles great when twitched slowly along the bottom.

 

My boat partner reckons I will not even tie it on the end of my leader, but I am determined to at least give it a swim when I come oversmile.gifsmile.gif
