    Good job. Nice looking fly too. I want my vise to get here already so I can tie that up! What is that fly or is it your invention?

    thanks Jake, hope your vise shows up soon too. That fly is nothing special, it's just a deer hair slider. The only thing that is a little different is I intentionally tied the head sparsely so it would sink very, very slowly instead of floating and instead of saddle hackles I used fin raccoon for the tail material. You could also use EP fiber type stuff for the tail too. I don't have a step by step for these but you shouldn't have much trouble googling up some how to video's on spinning and trimming deer hair and/or tying sliders in particular. It's not difficult once you get the hang of it, just be sure to use belly hair and not buck tail. Trimming is the part where you have to take your time is best done with a double edge razor blade instead of scissors.
