Fly Tying

gurgler baitfish

Recommended Posts

was looking for a big surface bait for pike so thought why not stick a fish behind a gurgler head hey ho gurgler baitfish was born , probably been done before but couldnt find anything anybody seen anything simular to it


first thing was to get a pile of foam on the hook



tie a fish behind it



7 inch gurgler baitfish



I'm liking it but would be interested to see if there is anything similar out there id imagine there maybe some bill fish patterns that are the same

I like it. I could see pike and musky tracking that down. interestingly, I could also see that as a coho/silver pattern in the saltwater. fish it in kelp beds or in bait balls on the surface and coho would have no issues tackling it even a big chinook.

Great looking fly and a great idea! I love using both gurglers and baitfish patterns but never thought of combining the two into one fly. Let us know how it works
