Extended Body Hex
Another vid coming from the anglers at Tight Lines Fly Shop. I don’t fish the hex hatch, as I’ve only ever seen a couple around my lakes and streams and the fish around here don’t key in on mayflies this large it seems. At any rate, here is a great technique demonstrated for tying a tight buoyant extended body for any mayfly. If you want to change up the species, just switch the scale and colour to suit the hatch. I like the use of caribou on the fly, I have a clump of it on my bench that is suddenly calling my name.
