Hey guys, you asked for photos
First try - All used the Dai-Riki Bass Bug hook in a size 6
Rainy's Pee Wee head in chartreuse, golden pheasant tippet in tail, chart/olive/black enhancer legs, yellow/black grizzly hackle, domed holo eyes
Rainy's Mini Me head in small yellow, black hackle feathers and red/yellow/black Montana Fly centipede legs, Black saddle hackle, same holo eyes as above.
Marabou tail frog - actually got hits on this when fished
Mini Me head in small yellow, yellow grizzly hackle tips, red/yellow/black rubber legs, burnt orange marabou, black hackle. Took a few casts to get marabou wet.
Finally - the tube fly. I had pics of separate parts, but I'm still learning my iPhone camera and had a hard time getting the auto-focus to pay attention to what I wanted (tried shaking it, etc, to get it to focus on the fly parts... will try again)
Mini Me head in white, colored with Prismacolor pens (have left over from design school - put to good use!), orange/black and yellow/black rubber legs pulled through head with needle and thread (couldn't find bobbin threader!), Holo 'oval' eyes in red, HMH junction tubing tube in small.
Hook is Gamakatsu SC15 in size 6 (tin plate), Yellow grizzly hackle tips for tail, with burnt orange marabou, golden pheasant tippet, and black saddle hackle.
I will consider tying this tail again on the bass bug hook or possibly a wide gap scud or bonefish hook. I am hoping to use the tube design to achieve more hook-ups - as the hook easily separates from the tube (does not sit inside the tube at all, but rides to the back of the tube)
I read somewhere online that apparently 'traditional' bass popper tails were tied in golden pheasant tippet. I just know that the color is a good triggering color from things I've tied like flies for kokanee.
Very interested to hear if you have suggestions for colors as well, or a good hook for the tube fly.
Thank you for your interest.
