30 Percent Sale! – Right here at FrankenFly

I have reduced most of my streamers to 30 percent off in the FrankenFly online Fly Shop. Check it out and see if you can find something you like. Also, if you are wanting a streamer that isn’t in the shop, just let me know and I’ll give you 30 percent off anything custom tied. Just contact me by email to ask about that.
My email is paul.beel (AT)

I’ve also had some inquiries on my new frog and new articulated streamer. You can find these on my Instagram @FrankenFly. These swim very well, but have not been fish tested. However, if you are interested, I’ll tie some for you and just charge you half what they will retail. Just send me an email asking about it.

Thanks all and I appreciate all of you reading FrankenFly!

Articulated Deer Hair Rat – Paul Monaghan

Deer hair is such a fun material to tie with, especially when tying Dave Whitlock style mouse and rat patterns. I recently started tying with deer hair again after a long break, so my technique needs a little work I know. The beauty of tying big pike/musky patterns is that you don’t need to be precise. Anyway enjoy and give it a go.

Material List:
Hook: Ahrex PR350 or 351 6/0 and 4/0
Shank: 35mm
Thread: White Veevus 200D GSP
Belly: White Deer Hair belly
Back: Cow Elk Back-strip in Natural
Tail: White Jumbo Slim
Ears: Tan Nayat skin
Eyes: 6mm red Legs: Waspi Silly
Legs in Orange/white
