DT Special – Tuffleye

I’ve been playing around with some saltwater patterns and Tuffleye lately. Here is a saltwater patten I tied up called the DT Special for targeting saltwater species. I used Tuffleye from Wet a Hook technologies on this fly in place of epoxy. The Tuffleye is nice as I don’t need to mix it, or use a wheel to set it.

 The pattern was developed by Captain Duane White for targeting snook. It imitates a minnow, so I wouldn’t hesitate to try my hand at targeting pike with this fly. In fact, some of the pike flies I have tied up in the past were based on this type of tarpon fly design. No harm in trying.
