This fly was created by the order of a fisherman friend, Rodrigo Amadeo, who asked me something big, light and movement. With that concept occurred to me to apply the same to the old Hi-Ti to an articulated fly technique.

Getting an elongated silhouette in this fly is essential, for which the wing locks of hair should not be too long and should be drawing a long, slim silhouette.

Depending on what we want to fly or species of fish that want to fish we can tie the fly with more or fewer hairs on the wings can be achieved from a robust silhouette to an ultra slim silhouette, which also interferes with the ability to sink fly because the more volume grant will be harder to sink.

Another aspect of great importance is the type of hair we use, can use short or long, soft or rigid hairs. The Bucktail, red or gray fox, arctic fox, rabbit, weasel, raccoon dog temple, goat and calf tail are excellent for different applications, it is best if used select soft hairs fly in moderate or slow water flow and use The stiffer hairs when the fly is intended to streams of fast and strong currents.
