Articulated Trout Slider

Warm up your deer hair and razor blades

Trout Mega Slider

For the past few months I have really been on a saltwater kick, but little did I know that the slider pattern would punch me straight in the teeth!  I'm addicted to tying these, but more importantly, I love how they look in the water.  They are almost like a suspending bug that doesn't plummet, but slides down through the water column.  It also happens to have a pretty bulky head to help it push insane amounts of water if you are in to that type of thing.  The cool part about this fly is that the head can be attached to about any style of fly you want as you see with our complex twist slider.  The body of this fly is gold ice dub (sparkle minnow style), and I'll be attaching this style of body to many more of my patterns!  Hope you enjoy the video.  Keep your razors sharp and your deer hair fat!

  1. are you figure 8 tying the bruiser blend throat, or just tying it directly behind the barbell eyes?
