Good morning to all.

I have noticed for a while now since the silicone fly has made its appearance in salt water that the traditionalists have become more susceptible incorporating artificial materials into trout flies. Especially with silly legs, pre-made thoraxes etc.

Have any of us attempted curly tails on trout flies as I'm sure they will work. Tying methods and where in Cape Town these are available. I would assume these lend themselves more to still trout than thin river fishing.

Kind regards,
Pierre
