Fly Tying Video-John Collins Ties JCs Copperhead

For this week's Fly Tying Video John Collins twists up JC's Copperhead. This is a great variation of the venerable Wooly Bugger. John has used some really interesting materials in this fly, building in some fantastic strike triggering properties and added durability. Instead of chenille for the body, John uses peacock herl, which is ALWAYS a good idea. For the tail he uses Fin Raccoon instead of marabou. It pulses in the water the same as marabou, but it is way stronger and more resistant to sharp teeth. The Copperhead also has Dry Fly hackle replacing saddle for a little extra glow. This fly will definitely out-fish your average Wooly Bugger. John ties the Copperhead in a huge range of sizes fro #16 to #4. This fly will catch Panfish, Bass, Trout, Carp etc.
