CHUM FRY SLIDER Roger Stephens has been extremely creative converting traditional flies to topwater flies. I decided to convert the Chum Baby to a tube fly slider. I used a ProTube MicroTube and started by wrapping the tube with Pearl Bill's Body Braid. I then addd a sparse clump of Red Fox Tail as it is finer than squirrel tail and I think it will move more in the water. Then added 3 strands of UV Pearl Krystal Flash doubled around the tying thread. I then added a throat of 6 strands of Red Flashabou doubled around the tying thread. I then wrapped 6 turns of Peacock Herl. The Peacock Herl acts as a pillow for the Whiting Eurohackle variant tied in flat wing style. The head is a Rainey's Pee Wee Dink that I cut in half with a razor knife. I used a Dremel Tool with the beehive sander to hollow out the back to cover the tie-in point. I then colored the head with a Prismacolor Bronze felt pen to color the head. UV Eyes are attached with Zap-A-Gap. The head is then coated with Loon Hard Head Phosphorescent to seal the foam, increase durability and produce a soft glow. I will test the fly this weekend in Port Townsend at Cutts & Chums.
