Craft Fur Baitfish (with hollow tie) – Fly Tying With Matt Bennett


Matt Bennett is one of the most innovative fly designers these days. From Texas Hill Country bass to high country trout in Colorado, Matt has a full set of tying skills in his arsenal. This is Matt’s full tying demo of his Craft Fur Baitfish from his in-store presentation on 5/31/18. This demo was to present the hollow tie technique more than just a standard pattern…although this is a Pike Fly variation used to represent a rainbow trout. This technique can be adapted for a variety of baitfish including bass flies, musky flies, big articulated trout flies, golden dorado, and peacock bass patterns. Grab some craft fur and add this technique to your arsenal…and watch for the game-changing way to tie with craft fur.
