The tail of the baitfish imitations is normally
The body of fish imitations I normally wrap with Pearl Flashabou on top of silver foil, and then covered with clear finish. Bigger size flies and insect imitations can have body of chenille or dubbing. The final painting of the back with waterproof markers makes the fly similar to the fish you want to imitate. Waterproof paint is another solution for the body cover.
The wing is made only on some flies, which need wider silhouette of the fore part. For instance, it is possible to tie to its back two soft feathers — same way as when you work on Matuka fly. Stiff feathers worsen the fly action. Anti-wobblers were catching fresh pink salmon in both sea and river.
Comparing with normal wobbler-flies, the Antiwobblers do not need the buoyant foam back; many of them I make with no foam at all. The flies with no foam have good action as well, but the ones with foam move differently. On retrieve they come up faster, move higher than the fishing line, and have wide sweeping action. On the contrary, the flies with no foam have higher frequency of vibrations, and do not pull to the surface too much.
Red throat is an important element of different fish imitations. You could either tie in a little bunch of a red fibrous material, or use some red paint.
A sunset at the Amur River. The Anti-wobbler could be presented near the bottom, in the middle layers of water, under the surface, and on the surface as a skating fly. It is an excellent choice for the big rivers. It is a good searching pattern which allows checking different water layers of a deep pool. If you see a rise of a predator, it is easy to lift it off the water and cast to the wake.
The Antiwobblers are rather difficult to fine-tune. The tuning of the wobbler flies and Antiwobblers is done same way: by cutting the edges of the blade in semi-circles. It is necessary to get a stable wiggling action on retrieve with different speed (from 40 to 100 cm/sec). The most agile flies start wiggling on the speed of 30 cm/sec. A good fly is not falling on one of the sides, and is not rotating even on strong current.
The Anti-wobbler is one of the best flies for skygazer from the Amur River.
Same as other types of wobbler flies, Anti-wobblers are not much sensible to the thickness of the tippet — if they are tied with a loop. Flies on #
