Articulated Fly Tutorial - Rattles up!
This pattern is based off of Kelly Galloup's Tips-up with a few twists. The coolest innovation in this fly is the rattle in the tail. Here in the Wild Angling lab we wanted to get rattles in the fly without the huge bulk of tying it on the shank. So we came up with hiding it in the tail! Definitely gonna be adding more large rattles in other patterns with this style. Check out the video and let us know what you think!!
