That's an awesome looking fly. That would make a sweet show piece! Either way is looks like it would be a lot of fun to have a go at.

I usually build salt water flies and streamers. The mayfly build is a trade with jonister, and a test of my skills. My flies are usually for blue fish, stripers, and sometimes fluke.

So 3-8inch baitfish/predator flies 

I have not targeted these species but predator species are my fav to target so might fav a pattern or two that you would like. Duck feathers for this style of tying I use for fins and highlight points 

 

i will try to do some tying over the next few days and post them with recipes 

 

i guess knowing what species of duck you have feathers from could be useful lol

I have plenty of Mallard Drake feathers. Wanting to tie hooks for topwater baits, both poppers and walking style presentations. Which feathers have y’all used from ducks for this method?

Thanks John
