Simple shad/ blue gill pattern?

Recommended Posts

Probably as good a bass fly as you can get will be a black and white clouser minnow. Simple to tye and very effective, black on the top and white on the bottom, slip in a bit of crystal flash and you will have a winning fly for sure.

Another really good shad pattern that i have used is one with ep fibers. A bit harder than the clouser minnow to tye but also a very effective patter. Cant get a much better fish imitation than with ep.

 

Good luck. wink.png

These are two I like to use in shad colors.

Here's some I came up with for a friend...The top 2 have craft fur dubbed around lead eyes. The others have epoxied eyes or glued on...

Po mans EP fibers from kids hair pieces, $1 ea. From DollarTree. They look almost transparent. I think that makes'em especially "fishy" looking...

This is one I came up with recently, it looks a lot more difficult than it really is. The tail is two long-ish hen saddles, tied in deceiver-style, with a few wraps of the webby butts in front to build up some bulk, followed by two clumps of either bucktail (size 1 and larger) or calftail (size 2 and smaller) behind the eyes and another clump of buck/calftail on the back, Thehead is then built up by tying in and folding back clumps of Senyo's Lazer Dub in appropriate colors, then trimming to shape if necessary.

denduke,

 

Great find on the hair. Is this the same hair you used in the above flies? How does it react in water?

It works fine...flexible, translucent shine, uniform diameter. It just does not "bulk up" like congo or EP fibers. Here's some on small streamers...
