Troutbom, here is what I am using for the tail material. Pretty soft stuff.
Yes, but only the tarpon flies from Umpqua Feather Merchants (and they only wholesale to fly shops I’m afraid). I’m done as a commercial tyer (at one time I was tying for three shops at the same time, plus other guides and anglers that had specific needs…). If I ever have to quit guiding (I’m 73 now) I’ll take it up again if I’m still able.Thanks for asking.
Missed ...I must be missing something here.Trolling streamer flies while running 12 mph from spot to spot?!?!I'm not exactly sure what the thought is. Are you going to run them from a fly rod?You would definitely need a planer or deep trolling weight on the line (such as for wahoo) to keep a fly subsurface.I think you are going to a lot of trouble ... and would be better off with an Ilander. Now don't get me wrong. Here is a yellowfin I caught in Christmas Island trolling a cedar plug with a fly rod and reel.
