Default Jointed Green Dragon with Underwater Footage

I tied this fly out of necessity than anything else. I hit up a small lake a week or so ago, and I had multiple hits but never actually stuck a fish. They were hitting the tail end of the fly, and not touching the hook. So I am tying this fly that will hopefully give me more chances to hook into the fish since there are 2 hooks, and hopefully keeping one hook towards the tail end will help it get those short hits.


Hook: Daiichi 1750 - size 8
Thread: UTC 140 - Dark olive
Cone head: 6mm, silver
Tail/Body: Rabbit zonker strips - 1/8", olive
Flash: Gold crystal flash and black holographic flashabou
Flash collar: Starburst dubbing: golden peacock
Dubbing head: Olive bull frog dubbing/olive starburst dubbing

That's a pretty solid fly. Fly tying might be your calling.
