Ice Cream Cone Mullet

I wanted to make a fly that is light and easy to cast, but also has a wide profile and pushes lots of water. I am heading to Corpus Christi TX after hurricane Harvey to do some fly fishing and help my friend do some repairs on his house. I wanted to make a mullet fly that doesn't soak up water, and is rather easy to cast with a 6wt rod. Right now, finger mullet are the best bait for reds and speckled trout, so I am hoping this fly will work great for them. The SF fiber has lots of sparkle in it, so it will be flashy, and also see through.

Here is a list of materials I used on this fly
Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 in size 1/0
Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed in black
Belly Fiber: SF Blend Fiber in White (clear)
Top Fiber: SF Blend Fiber in Black (midnight Blitz)
Tubing: Crinoline Tubing

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
