Petitjean Magic Heads

Recommended Posts

After reading this, and watching a few video's on them, I picked up a pack of them from my local shop. I don't do much bass fishing these days, but I'm interested to see if the trout like them trolling behind my float tube this summer!

 

On a side note TheCream, I really like that perch pattern in the first picture. Are those EP fibers? What colors?

 

No EP, the streamer recipe is very simple. For the streamer brush I use, I make my own using Senyo Laser Dub.

 

-Hook: 4XL/1XH straight eye streamer hook

-Magic Head

-Tail: Angel Hair flash and Pseudo Hair

-Body: wrapped streamer brush of Laser Dub

-Eyes: 3D dome eyes

-Fill: UV Knot sense in between the eyes, overcoated with Hard as Hull

-Color: Prismacolor/Sharpie markers

 

So the perch pattern is yellow/olive Pseudo Hair with gold Angel Hair flash in the tail. The body is a straight yellow Laser Dub brush, wrapped/picked out/combed back, and then used a light olive Prismacolor for the back, a black Sharpie for barring, and orange Sharpie for the throat. I can crank them out fairly fast, I usually work ahead on the brushes and do all the brushes I will need before tying the flies. I can do a brush of solid color Laser Dub in 4-5 minutes usually.

Thank you very much!

I'm debating on getting some of these just for the pleasure of more accurately imitating Damselfly larvae. They undulate more than any fish I can think of other than eels. I remember the first time I saw them swimming at the surface, it was really eye opening.

I am going to tie some small carp flies using a smaller size Magic Head. Not just for the lifelike movement, but hoping the vibration can help get Mr Carp's attention. I experimented last year with a rattle in a carp fly and that worked well, I don't see why this wouldn't? :)
