Working on hollow flies.  Been trying studying videos, bob pops book went to a class last year in Maine before the Covid set in.   Finally after wasting many prime buck tails I am making progress.

Don't shy away from fishing some of the ones that you think don't look to good. I seem to only catch big fish on poorly tied/very beat up of hollow fleyes. Those hollows look really good. I am tying a couple with peacock on the top for the first time this year.

This is my prototype go-to lure for the year. It's a big 5/0 bendback with a good amount of of lead piled underneath near the hook bend to make sure it goes point up. The body is all kinky fiber with a Jonny King head.
