I like it. I use craft fur a lot for smaller bait fish patterns, and long synthetic fibers ( ep fiber as of late ) to tie bigger versions for offshore fly fishing. This is a picture I took several years ago after about 6 months of fly tying experience. When I first started I really tried to grab the bull by the horns because I didn't want to have to spend 5-7 dollars on a single fly.
Awesome stuff! Thats a HUGE pike on a fly rod. Congrats.
I have not put together the packages of fur yet. But plan to do so first part of next week. I have made this offer on 2 other forums and I will get all the names and info together in one place and send out some fur. Mike I set aside some for you as well my friend!
"you call that the Super Fly?" LMAO I stilt my coffee laughing at this comment! Too FUNNY!

That's a great shot. I used to fish the Keys in the 90's frequently. That photo reminds me of a lot of good times, Flip Pallot, Sandy Moret, Fishing with Alan Star out of Bud n Marys. Time sure flies by.
Just got back from chasing tuna on the OBX.
We have some guys on Lake St. Claire here in SE MI that chase Muskies on the fly.
Does that mean the fur will be flying Randy??
We had a pretty slow day with a Westerly offshore wind. Scortching hot but we picked up some Mahi and a 2 small Yellowfin plus one 40 pounder and one sixty pounder. Had a brief battle with a 400# Blue Marlin. No Big eyes this time which was a downer but we did have one crash the spreader twice. He just completely missed the baits.
Last trip we hit three 130 pound NC citation Big eyes all at the same time and had 500# of Tuna in the box in less than two hours. I haven't been fly fishing in a while. Some where I have a photo of us with ESPN's Reel guys at Camp Bonaventure in the Gaspe. That was an awesome trip.

Some pretty flies in this thread, I used tie when I was younger.
