Fly Tying Video Library

the Great Pumpkin

Creator: unknown

This is a very big, bright, noisy fly used for spinner sharks and other shark species. The fly can be as neat or as sloppy as you care to tie it, either way the shark will completely destroy it everytime. It is most definitely a one fish fly. This is one of the few cases where the symmetry, balance or proportions really don’t matter. Just put this one in front of them. Don’t worry, they eat it every time.
