What’s New Wednesday, S.A.T FLIES (snap a tail)

The idea behind these flies is to have an alternative to trailer hooks, more movement and interchangable tails if your hook goes dull.  You can tie different tails in different sizes and colours to match your fly and snap them on by the river or at home. The snaps I use are found in our salwater section.  I use the smallest size.  To put on the snap I use 20Ib mono.The hook for the tail part is a 2451 Daichi but you can use any straight eye hook of your choice.Here is an example of a S.A.T fly. Step-by-Step Step 1: put the mono through the snap and tie on the shank firmly.   Step 2: put the tag ends into the eye of the hook and fold…
