Craft Wind Streamer for Bass/Pike

Recommended Posts

This has to be one of my favorite streamers for bass fishing. It swims really well in the water with lots of movement. There is lots of flash in the tail which attracts fish like pike who seem to go after shiny things. Also, this fly doesn't hold a lot of water, so its not too difficult to cast with a 6wt-8wt rod. You could use other materials as well for this. If you don't have Arctic Wind dubbing, you could use hairlines custom blend. It has different properties, but it would work for this pattern.

Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - Size 1/0
Thread: Danville's 210 flat waxed - Chartreuse
Tail: Extra Select Craft Fur - White and Chartreuse
Flash: Flashabou - Pearl
Collar: Starburst Dubbing - Hot yellow
Weight: Brass Dumbbell eye - 5mm
Adhesive: Krazy Glue
Dubbing Head: Arctic Wind Dubbing - White and Hot Yellow
Head Cement: Solarez "Bone Dry" UV curing resin

Nice. I haven't quite built up any confidence in tying and fishing baitfish streamers yet but this one looks like something I need to try. Great video and I really like that you include the swim test.
