Beast Fleye - Shanked Variant

Tying the Bob Popovics Beast Fleye takes a bit of practice to select the correct bucktail, taper and length, but don't let that put you off tying this great moving fly. Plus you don't need the longest bucktail. Tying them on shanks as Bob does too, makes the tying process quicker and easier. It won't be the most exciting tutorial to view as we repeat steps, but this is a tutorial so edits are light to ensure I don't skip important information. Don't rely on Youtube to tie flies all the time, go buy Bob's book 'Fleye Design'.
I'll be giving away this fly and a packet of Ahrex SA270 Bluewater 4/0. All you have to do to win is like, subscribe and leave a comment in this video of why you should win (try and be funny). I'll run the comp till the end of Jan 2020 before I pick my favourite comment. Good luck and don't be scared of the Beast.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
