Week 8: Improvised Lure Challenge for Flytyin'Joel Created: Wed, 07/22/2020 - 01:09 Default: No

I tied some flies using no tools. Caught some sunfish and rock bass using a small hook with wire wrapped around it for weight and orange fuzz which I used for dubbing. I tied off the knot with a half hitch knot. Also used a piece of aluminum foil tape which worked quite well. I tied a larger top water fly for bigger species such as bass using old sewing thread, an orange ear plug, (for a popper) and a feather which looked good in the water but no large fish around. The perch and smallie both bit on sewing thread with some flashy stuff and some yarn like stuff. What a fun and creative challenge!
