This tying video was put together for the Revive Fly Fishing online magazine which can be viewed at Revive – The Fly Fishing Journal. Some killer photography work and top shelf writing.

I was asked to come up with a fly using a Misfit Halo Head (misfitfly.com). I used the large Misfit Halo Head and combined it with a Deceiver type fly. The girth of the head pushes water over the body giving the schlappen and grizzly hackles (and the whole fly) a ton of movement. This is a good size fly that could be used for pike or hunting big trout.
