Floral Wire for Fly Action

Fraser Coast, Australia fishing guide Paul Dolan came up with an interesting way to add action to saltwater flies recently: using floral wire and foam to create a fly that rises on the strip and sinks in between pulls. The DK Dancer was first tied by Lionel Kemp for impoundment barramundi, but looks like it might be a good pattern for many other species. Just a tip: tie your leader to the fly eye, not the floral wire. (Thanks to reader Randall Bryett for this link.)
