    Default Pole dancer

    Hi does anyone know how to tie a pole dancer.
    I have been searching the web but couldn’t find
    anything. What material can be used and how
    to weight the fly correctly. I am very new to fly
    Fishing and don’t have experience on different
    material. Thank you

    I would happily spend a morning on the internet searching for "pole dancer", but if you had enough look at this link:

    Thank you peterbez I appreciate I am
    Going to try and tie one. I have noticed
    that the fly is being tied on a tube first
    and then the tube is inserted in the head.
    Do you guys think the fly will still work if
    I tie the material to the hook shank instead.

    The idea is to keep the hook point lower in the water(to the extent that shanks are wrapped with lead wire) so the following tail is close to the surface and allowed to swing from side to side - walking the dog action.
