Forage Fly

On January 20th, with assistance from our presenter, Ken Prager, we tied the Fish-Skull Fantastic Tail Forage fly in white. Tails are available in white, black, chartreuse and tan. A highly versatile streamer fly effective for targeting most saltwater species.

These materials are available at our local fly shop or can be ordered directly from Fly-men fishing company web site. Frantic Tails are made of nearly indestructible, ultra-light synthetic suede that cannot be bitten off, will not shrink, and provides lifelike texture and movement when wet. Each suede body is precision laser cut, making each 100% identical and allowing for fine detail. – Ken
