Red Blue Challenge


How do you make this fly? I painted it but short of dying my own buck tails, where do you find red and blue deer hair. I believe brown, white, and black are the common colors but I recently got hold of a yellow buck tail Which Is GREAT for the streamers I love to fish. I think I can only tie this with feathers. If you can tie this with buck tail, send me a pic of your work and how you tied it and I'll post it here with a plug for your blog/site.

I like the new look.

You can purchase colored bucktails at most online shops.

J. Stockard, abd Bearlodge Angler are good sources,

Peter - I realy liked your fly. All American, flag and all.

Brk Trt - Thanks for the info. Whenever I hit a flyshop I look but never find odd color hair I like - time to look online. Thanks.

Bigerrfish - Love the comment. Sharpie is probably best bet to customize a small selection of flies. By the way I'll post your tied version on the 25th. I do challenge you to tie up Peters fly. If mine was simple I'd like to see an American Fly tied up. Good Luck!
