Guaranteed (Variant) SBS

Discussion in 'Fly Tying Step by Step' started by S Fontinalis, Jul 23, 2013.

  1. This fly is strikingly similar to the Goats toe i posted the other day and was linked in that thread. So i though i'd tie some up. I know nothing about the pattern, except that i looks deadly!

    This is variant as i used some different materials and did two hackle versions.

    Couple photos are burry, but you'll get the general idea!
