This fly is one that a friend showed me a while back. In fact you saw me fish with him this past summer. Kyle is his name, and he is the one who took me out on his bass boat to fly fish for some smallmouth bass. He had one of these flies that he said he used for months, and caught probably 100 bass on. It was so durable, and very effective. So of course I went home and tied a few. And sure enough, these are effective and durable. This version I changed up the colors a bit, and some of the materials. Mainly the dubbing used. Its very good quality dubbing, and the synthetic mixed with the natural really makes a unique dubbing. I like this version, and the color pattern really works as a baby brown trout imitation. Materials I used: Hook: Gamakatsu B10S in size 2 Thread: Veevus Power Thread 140 in Brown Weight: Large Painted Lead Dumbbell Eyes Dubbing: Monster Dubbing in Dark Brown, Yellow and White Wing: Magnum Rabbit Zonker in Chinchilla UV Resin: Solarez "Ultra Thin"
This fly really is awesome! Kyle was fishing this fly last time we went out fishing for smallmouth, and he got quite a few on it. Also, while I was snagging up a few times, he didnt snag once, due to the hook point turned upward. This is a great freshwater streamer, and will catch a wide variety of sportfish. Also, this hook is super sharp! And it seems very strong. I tried bending it and it didnt seem to want to bend too much. I think this is going to be one of my new favorite streamer hooks. I barely touched it, and it ripped me open so quick. But I barely felt it, because the hook was so sharp. Hook: Gamakatsu B10S, Size 2 Lead Dumbbell Eyes: Sparkle Dubbing - Starburst dubbing, holographic silver Tail: Magnum Rabbit Zonker Dubbing: Homemade laser dub, watch the video here - https://youtu.be/uTytvz-9FAc Or just buy laser dub... UV Resin: Solarez "Flex Formula"
