A dahlberg tied to imitate sunfish?

 

Brilliant!

 

 

is that ok?...hope i didnt break some kind of taboo.

 

was flipping through "Flies for Bass and Panfish" looking for sunfish imitations and most of the stuff in there needed materials i dont have. This was one that i could do with what i had so i just did it up with the necessary colors. Apparently Mr. Dahlberg said that pattern was more productive "than all the rest of the flies combined" at the smallmouth camp he guided when a teenager.

yes, deer hair. i hadnt left myself much room so my head is a little smaller than the one in the book. i also want to make sure i can get it down so dont want too much floatyness. page 36 for those following along at home. :-)
