Easy Flesh Fly
The Alaska Fly Fishers have been busy video taping one “Flashback Max” and his handy work on the vise. i just finished tying up a batch of these flies myself. Sadly the aren’t destined for my fly box, but for a client who is taking a trip north for the fall salmon season in Alaska. If you have both zonker strips and cross cut rabbit, it really makes this fly easy to tie, but because it’s flesh that you are trying to imitate, random chunks will work just as well and perhaps even better.
Try tying this in light shades of pinks, tans and ginger colored rabbit. You can vary it further by using a two-tone approach, using say a pink tail and a creamy tan body. Happy tying.
