|Chuck's Sakasa Kebari|
|A Chuck's Sakasa Kebari & a Usual made from only woodchuck|
I think the Chuck's Sakasa Kebari is very similar to my Ausable Kebari. However, I think using woodchuck, instead of Australian opossum, for the body may give not only different floatation properties but it also gives the fly a "buggier" appearance. The woodchuck Usual certainly looks like a different colored Usual but will it float like the original? I guess I will just have to go out and spend a couple of hours surveying some trout. What a chore that will be! I like the way these flies came out and look forward to more experimentation with this great material. I guess the next time I visit my parents and go out into the back yard I will have a new found appreciation for this member of the squirrel family and have to wonder to myself.....How many flies could a fly tier tie, if a fly tier could tie flies from a single woodchuck?
