McFly flies are designed by Duncan McKenzie, a professional fly fisherman, master fly tyer, and long-time representative of the Intl. Game Fish Association (retired). Among Mr. McKenzie's fly fishing accomplishments:
Four time winner of the "Billfish on Fly Tournament", Watamu, Kenya.
First person worldwide to tag/release a Broadbill Swordfish on fly per IGFA regulations.
First person in Africa to tag/release a Striped Marlin on fly per IGFA regulations.
Prior record holder for Kenyan 8kg tippet for Pacific Sailfish.
One of handful of anglers worldwide credited with catching a Broadbill Swordfish, Marlin and Sailfish on a fly.
Patterns available to target any predator species in the world.
Uniquely stiff-rigged using coated 30lb wire – McFly flies run true when trolled.
Larger 4/0 SS O'Shaughnessy front hook acts as a keel, while a 1/0 needle point SS octopus stinger hook improves hook-ups.
The addition of beads to the connecting wire further stiffens the rig and helps with the fly profile. McFly flies maintain their "bait fish" profile while submerged.
For casting, ideally suited for 8 – 12wt fly rods.
The hooks on all McFly fishing lures are sharp! Store your lures out of reach of children!
