Astyanax in Matuka style
Recently I showed a small streamer that I designed to imitate a small fish that we call here Red-tailed Mojarra.
Now I bring for your consideration a pattern that I imagined to imitate the same species only that tied in the particular style of the well-known Matukas flies.
I hope you like it!
