Borski's Redfish Slider

Borski's Redfish Slider's are great flies for redfish and seatrout. The most common inshore forage for the gulf fish is brown shrimp. This fly mimics the brown shrimp wonderfully. It moves really nicely in the water due to being tied with craft fur.

Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 Hook Size 2. (you can use any saltwater long shanked hook)
Weight: Dumbell Eyes (I used 5MM size)
Body: Craft fur (I used tan, but you can use any color to match the shrimp in your area)
Collar: Streamer sized saddle hackle (Red, pink, or orange to resemble the egg sack on shrimp).
Head and upper collar: I used elk hair, but its more traditionally tied with deer hair. Elk hair tends to be slightly less buoyant, but deer hair is easier to spin
