Blane Chockletts Game Changer fly burst onto the scene last year, and then faded into obscurity.  Maybe its still used in the states a lot, but not here.   The main reason for this I suspect is the difficulty in tying.

I, like a lot of other people was told it was tied used Hareline Body Wrap.   So I ordered stacks of the stuff and then tried and tried and tried.  I couldn’t get the bloody thing right.  It came out looking like a Pinterist fail.  It also wouldn’t take to a marker, and came apart when tying.

So I went back to the video, and quickly spotted something.  That wasn’t hardline body wrap.  It was CCT fur.  I ordered stacks of that and BAM.  Its actually pretty easy to tie.  They don’t look great after a few sessions though, so you have to constantly brush it out.

They do look amazing in the water.  Better than almost any other fish fly Ive seen.  It also pushes a lot of water.  So I wanted to make one for Kob missions.  To invert it I tied in a section of 50lb mono and used tungsten beads.  You should see this thing in the water.  Its almost better on the drop than the pull.

I tie the back section on a small stainless hook and then cut the shank off. Those are two sets of feathers.  There are two sections complete in this pic.
