    what is your favorite fly

    Hi guys and girls, I was wondering what will it be if you could only choose three flies and what colors for salt water fishing in the bays and outside say from small bream to 8kg tuna.
    let see how every one differs with their favorite.
    cheers Vince.

    1. Surf candy - olive/white
    2. Clouser minnow - chart/white, olive/white, chart/yellow.
    3.Rust Buckets - black, olive and rust.

    cheers, Justin

    Can't say I have found any particular fly that does well consistently for bream. Maybe I have'nt tried hard enough. My favourite fly is the one which caught the last fish.

    If I had to choose three flies based on my limited experience I would say..........

    Flashy Profile or ALF type flies, I have only used blue so far.
    Polar Fibre Minnow in green, olive, pink or blue
    Deceiver or Clouser, how can I decide between these two? White, chartreuse, blue, olive or whatever matches the baitfish.

    Vince, what are your favourites?

    Justin, what is a Rust Bucket and what do you catch on them?

    adam - a rustbucket is basically a charlie pattern,first created to intice small mangrove jacks on the sunshine coast. Its tied with a chinelle body, with the wing consisting of a layer of bucktail, then over the top of that a layer of rabit fur. they sink nice and slow and have a great action and work well on bream and bass.

    cheers, Justin

    Easy, A small white deceiver, a middling sized deceiver and a bit bigger deceiver. Kidding, but try a little white Deceiver about 2" long period. Max

    my three would be 1 clouser
    2 deceiver
    3 whistler
    I use all of the above types in different sizes depending on target species and depth of water being fished. Colour WHITE.

    Always good to hear what flies other people are using.
    Might have to try a rust bucket on some fussy bream. Do you tie the rabbit fur on like you tie on bucktail, or do you have a strip of skin with fur attatched like some other flies?

    Thanks Justin

    I thought I understood what you meant, but then I read it again(with great confusion)and I have no idea. Do you know if there is a picture of this fly somewhere?
