Fat Head Heifer Groomer



I had so much success in the past two years on the south fork of ten mile using just a basic yellow zoo cougar, so I decided it was time to give an articulated version a try as well. A lot of the patterns that I have enjoyed tying as of late are Kelly Galloup's works of art.  A rather simple tie that many new at the sport could replicate on their vise. This fly is also not weighted. In order to fish it properly in heavy water, a streamer line would be most beneficial. If you don't want to spring the cash for a new line and spool, Poly-leaders and sink tip systems will do the job for a fraction of the cost. Lastly, it appears that I may need to clean up my fly tying area.
