Deer Hair Baitfish

This one is made from Bucktail and Deer hair twisted around the hook.

Hook: 2/0 Turrell Saltwater Streamer
Tail: Bucktail (Olive, Flu Green)
Body: Deer hair (Red, Black, White)
Eyes: 3D Holo Eyes from Rich
Notes: Grab a pencil size of Color one bucktail and tie at the base of the hook above the barb. Then add some of color two. Tie it off and then glue to secure.
Then take some Deer hair, color one, hold at a 45 degree angle to the hook shaft, put 3 loose loops around and pull tight slowly and the hair will frizz out. Pack it up and repeat again in what ever color patter you like. You can make stripes this way, or repeat all in the same colour. Tie off at the front and glue. Then take some siccors and trim the excess away. This gives you  a better body shape.
It will be easy to cast and quite light and should like ok in the water.
Below is another variation. All of this was tied with bucktail which has different properties to that of Deer hair:

About Chris Ainger

I have been working in IT since 1998 in the Public Housing Sector. I have worked with Citrix since 2003 in the days of Citrix Metaframe XP 1.0 FR2. Since then I have been through the processes of upgrading to Presentation Server 4.0 with a farm of around 150 servers. Since then I have helped create a farm of around 200 servers using XenApp 6.0 on VMware 4.1. This was a great experience which has only increased during the upgrades of the environment for out 2000+ users. All of our clients are the WYSE 10 series using ThinOS which I have helped configure for individual users from a central location making administration very simple. I gained my CCA qualification in XenApp 6.0 in January 2012. I am a big fan of SolarWinds also, which is a great monitoring tool. It is very versatile with a small footprint of resource usage on the targeted devices. I am currently designing the interfaces for the IT department for daily use and also a Service view for the Support Desk Team. I am also a keen fisherman, having restarted again after 20 years. I set myself yearly targets to try to complete which makes this more interesting and belong to several forums of other like-minded folks. I, on occasion, fly fish for trout as a treat once in a while or when the fridge gets empty and also sea fly fish for bass and mullet. My main area is sea fishing from either beach, harbour wall or pier. There are so many species of fish to catch around the UK that you can mix up the locations to try something different.
