Fresh water and salt water fly fishing in New Zealand and Australia. Brought to you by Riverworks waders, wading boots, vests, jackets, fly rods and reels.

The Double Up

This is what happens when you are waiting for summer…
Tied this today for when the whitebait are running. This should work on a few of the saltwater species like Kahawai, Trevally and Skipjack and maybe even a trout or two as well. Probably not the most time effective fly to tie but was a bit of fun any way.

Hook: Gamakatsu SP11 2/0
Wing: White Craft Fur Plus
Flash: Crystal Flash but anything pearl will do
Head: Clear Cure Goo (Like epoxy but sets with UV light)

Next will be a school of whitebait.

    Bit “out there”, but why not? Let me know how it casts/fishes.

    Where do you source the craft fur? I find it a real hassle finding long white fur. The locals seem to like wearing leopard spots, black, green, hot pink – any colour but white…
