Tip On How to Tie Marabou Flies
Producing an artificial fly can be challenging, but the rewards are great when that mighty river-bound beast leaps from the water. A great fly used with a Pflueger Summit fly reel can have anglers catching their limit in no time, and spending more precious time outside at their favorite hobby.
My first fly resembled something that most anglers would vacuum up from underneath the couch, something between “clump of dog hair” and “I think that’s pasta.” My second fly was obviously closely related to my first, with a bit of toenail thrown in for consistency. Gradually, my fly tying improved to the point where I thought they might help me catch a fish.
The first try with my new flies, I might as well have sat by the riverbank and willed the fish into my net, issuing repeated and insistent mental commands to my underwater nemesis. It was not meant to be, however, as fish are apparently possessed of significant mental toughness and psychic defenses. Using my flies with a Pflueger Summit fly reel helped considerably, and I suspect that the fish know quality fly-fishing gear when they see it, even submerged at a depth of three to seven feet. From that point on, my Pflueger Summit fly reel went everywhere with me, convincing fish and anglers alike that I was, despite my laughable Marabou Flies, a competent fly angler.
