About tutorial metrics:
Difficulty: Tying in a clump of material, palmering a material, and x-wrapping dumbbell eyes are considered easy techniques to master. As additional techniques are needed for a pattern, the difficulty rating increases.
Time: The average time the fly will likely take you to tie once you get proficient at it. Obviously the first few are going to take longer.
Cost: The total cost of all the materials needed for the fly, compared to all the other flies in the Fly Tying Video Vault.
If you had one fly for backcountry snook and tarpon (big and small) – Giacobba’s Doofus would be a good choice.
The contrast of natural and bright between the chartreuse and brown coloration makes this fly easily visible in cloudy water and low-light, while also keeping it inoffensive in clearer water on brighter days. We like all the movement from the Extra-Select Craft Fur tail.
The balance between buoyancy of all the materials tied on top and sink-rate of the extra-large Bead Chain eyes allows you to fish this bug effectively in both shallow and deep water.
