|Snakehead Fry imitation|
The fries that I'm trying to imitate
Snakehead, also know in Malaysia as Toman... a predator species that lives in our river and dam. Is a common game fish for many game and lure fishermen.
It's fries is an good imitation for those who plan to fish for the Hampala Barb ( Sebarau ) as we realize Sebarau like to attach Snakehead fries... maybe they are natural enemy in the water...
Streamer hook size 6-8
Dumb bell eye
Finn Raccoon Zonker Yellow and white
Ultra Wing pearl dubbing
Marker - Orange and Black
The step by step tying instruction:
Prepare the hook and tie in the dumb bell eye
Tie in small amount of white Raccoon zonker's fiber
Tie in another same amount of yellow Raccoon zonker's fiber on top
Do a dubbing loop and roll in some Ultra Wing dubbing
Spin the dubbing to create the belly
Tie in some flashabou
Tie in some Yellow Raccoon zonker's fiber, whip finish
Use an Orange maker and highlight the top
Use a black maker to draw the line
Drop some head cement and the fly is ready...
The tying technique is similar of tying a clouser.... and it's very simple.
Now we don't have to worry how to apply different color of materials to create color on the fly, just simply color it with makers...
