MagicHead Baitfish

Recommended Posts



A friend asked me, can you tie a Airhead pattern... I said, I will try...
So this is my version of a hollow head baitfish pattern which I call MagicHead Baitfish, which a bit similar with the Airhead pattern.
It's simple to tie...
Material list :
Marc Petitjean Magic Head
SF Blend

Mirror Flash as lateral line ( optional )
Ice Dub ( Optional )
Saltwater Hook
Deer Creek Gator eye

Not to take away from Marc Petitjean's revenue, but you can achieve the same effect by tieing on a piece of mesh tubing, with the opening facing forward, over the eye. Be sure to melt the edge of the tubing before you cut it so it doesn't fray on you. Then, in the same fashion as the magic head, just push the tubing back over the tie-in point and you will have the same sort of cupped spacer. Tie the remainder of this fly exactly as Dronlee has done. And by the way, Dron, I think you are an absolute artist. Your work is always amazing.
