Bounty - on gray Redfish Crack flies!
« on: December 04, 2012, 04:22:44 PM »
Okay fly tyers... need some creative genius to put together a very specific redfish crack fly. Seems I lost Mike Graham's last remaining "magic" redfish crack fly, and boy is he vocal about it. Check the Saltwater Outing Chat for the more complete story.

So here's the deal... I am putting a bounty on the redfish crack fly that is just like the one that was lost. I'm putting up $100 for twelve perfect flies (six for Mike, six for me), and the recipe, but they have to match Mike Graham's spec. It was made with some type of gray craft fur that turned into a kind of purple luminescence in the water, with a little silver flash. Pulsated nicely, and redfish jumped on that thing when they refused any other offering. Mike had it tied specially, but can't recall who tied it for him.

I know, that sounds like a lot of cash for a dozen flies, but it is worth it to me for the peace and quiet!

Any fly tying bounty hunters out there!?  ???  Drop me a line and let's get started!
Is that a strike indicator or a bobber?

Those are pretty, Joe, you'll have to teach me to tie them.

BUT... they are just like the flies that were repeatedly refused by the Sabine redfish. The magic was in the gray craft fur that was used. The good news is that Golden has apparently located the mysterious tyer who created the holy grail of redfish crack, and has the flies we need on the way. So I guess the bounty has already been claimed!

Thanks though - you were first on the list!

I will be interested in seeming this "grey" redfish crack flies. I read your post later that said the tans were rejected.

OK, Golden. Post up some pics of said fly.

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Puck - it's a little difficult to take a photograph of an object that has been lost. You're right, I should have taken a photo just before I lost it. Duh.
