STEP–BY–STEP FLY TYING: EXTENDED HOLLOW FLEYE

STEP–BY–STEP FLY TYING: EXTENDED HOLLOW FLEYE

Ahrex’s new Beast Fleye hook, developed with the help of Bob Popovics, is ideal for tying large fleye-style patterns. The hook’s long shank allows for more tie in points, and/or for bigger spaces between tie in points, resulting in a sparser, better swimming pattern. In this step by step extended hollow fleye tutorial, Andre van Wyk (bucktailflies.com) shows how Ahrex’s beast hook can be used to tie a large extended hollow fleye without the need for a mono-extension.

  • Hook: Ahrex SA292 Beast Fleye long # 6/0
  • Thread: Nano silk
  • Bucktaill: White and colourful dyed bucktail.
  • Hackle: Ewing flatwing hackle and short dyed hackle.
  • Squimpish: Purple
