Except fort he feathers, I think that one's most synthetic too.

And the white throat, bucktail, synthetics don’t taper like that. At least none that I’ve come across.

Has been a while since I have used these or even the fly rod but may bust it out this weekend. These are my only two mackerel patterns. One on the left swims better and the other I have never caught a fish on but looks nice. Perhaps, it should be fished differently that swimming on a more float and drift approach. Would love some advice on that....

Did these two last winter and they haven't seen the salt yet (in two weeks they will) so they are not really favorites. The first one is based on Gartside's Beastmaster General and the second on Pete Gray's Dual Tube Phlyz20210418_144301.jpg.9eea658b886dc807af0156ad9e0bd50b.jpg20201229_105110.jpg.d8006ef3b194b3c2555e8bd7ad16407e.jpg
