This fly works awesomely for bass. I have tied it in many color combos already. One perch coloration, a baby brown trout coloration, and now a baby rainbow coloration. I have caught quite a few bass on this fly. Its one of my best producers for fishing my local lake (navajo lake) in New Mexico. My buddy Kyle and I were fishing last summer and we probably caught 20+ fish each and were fishing this pattern most of the day. Just in a perch color. Here are the materials I used on this fly.

If you have ever fished for bass, you know that in most instances, a rattle helps attract them. They are also attracted big baits. Things that push lots of water. I created this fly to still be rather light, but have a big profile under the water. This in my opinion is the perfect fly for bass when they are targeting baitfish, and also a great fly for other species like like pike or even big trout. With a saltwater hook, you could tie this for many saltwater species as well. The flexible UV resin really makes a nice head on the fly, but its not hard and stiff, but it will flex a bit, which makes it more durable. It will give it a unique action as well, and help push water around the craft fur to make it move quite a bit more. The side to side motion will really drive those bass nuts.

I tied this fly out of necessity than anything else. I hit up a small lake a week or so ago, and I had multiple hits but never actually stuck a fish. They were hitting the tail end of the fly, and not touching the hook. So I am tying this fly that will hopefully give me more chances to hook into the fish since there are 2 hooks, and hopefully keeping one hook towards the tail end will help it get those short hits.
