    Been a bit hectic.
    I will tie some SBS tomorrow evening, with artificials.
    Some really lovely stuff, that can be done.

    Bait fish, squids, prawns, sand gobbies, etc.

    Hi
    I use a combination of buck tail and synthetics. The synthetics are durable but they do not have the same natural movement as the buck tail. So use the best of both worlds.
    I do still prfer to use the naturals a little bit of old school

    Beetle, agreed 100%. I have just been tying up some salty's for Knysna next week, and started wondering along the same lines - I have so much more synthetics in so many more colours than buck tail (natural & white, chartreuese, pink and blue...and that's it for the BT)...however I still find that the BT gives more body to the fly as the hair is thicker...for sparse Crazy Charlies, BT is still the best as you can get body on the fly with only a few hairs...

    Cheers,

    Jan.

    There is not a single bad person on earth, only persons that have been badly influenced.

    If you would like to be better person, remove the things that have a negative influence on you TODAY.

    You must have been sleeping like Rip van Winkel.
    Have a look at the SBS fresh and salt water.
    There are prawns, baitfish, fingerlings, bass bugs, etc. To many to mention.
    You can also look at Wiets's video library. There are some of the patterns with the techniques on how to tie with the artificials.
