Killer Docklight Fly

**** this up the other day and thought you guys on here would like it. I usually tie my docklight flies with a polar flash tail and just a palmering chenille body, bad thing with those is after a few fish they are usually trashed. It's a polar flash tail and polar flash just wrapped around the shank. put on eyes and then get to work with some clear cure goo or Loon (whatever you prefer) and build a nice little body. Basically like a tiny surf candy tied on a size 6. This gets rid of the problem of the fly falling apart because these are basically bullet proof. Did I mention that the snook and trout Love them in the lights! It gives off a great silhouette of a minnow kicking through the light. short brisk strips work best for me.
