Hi AvidMax fly tyers! More, fly patterns just for you! Try your luck at tying the Crease fly!
The Crease Fly is baitfish popper imitation developed by Joe Blado. The Crease Fly is a great pattern for saltwater and freshwater species. It is favored by tuna fisherman and bass fisherman alike. The Crease Fly not only has a life-like baitfish look, but it also spits and chugs through the water, thus making it irresistible to hungry predators! The Crease Fly can also be tied in many color variations and sizes. Some tiers like to use foil or mylar for the body shine/color. In this video, James from InTheRiffle will show you how to use the glue technique by painting the color onto the fly. There are many glues on the market now including UV resins, Polyurethane finish and good old epoxy. Epoxy is still one of the most durable options, but also the messiest. In this video we use Loon Hard Head, which is the Polyurethane option. It’s very easy to work with and you can add layers for durability and color finish. Get creative and have fun!!
