Tying the Bass On Bed Fishing Fly aka BOB FLY and BOBTAIL FLY

Recommended Posts

Variant of a pattern used on bass during the spawn. This one uses a bent 2/0 hook, one pink marabou plume, two olive marabou plumes, red dumbell eyes, and pink dacron tying thread.

It's fished by dragging it slowly across a Bass bed, stopping and shaking to coax a strike, and setting the hook soon as the pink plume disappears... meaning the bass has taken the fly!

PS: Made a modification to it by adding 2-3 pnk marabou plumes to the hook bend to make it ride with its hook bend up while resting on the bottom of a bass bed!  It's called the BOBTAIL Fly!

Here is the video on...

Fishing for bedding fish is considered unsportsmanlike by most in my parts. Dragging anything across a bed is no different than putting your foot on it. It may be legal to fish beds but dragging things through the bed does not seem like a good choice.

Tied another variant of the BOBTAIL Fly... this one is different, no dumbbell eyes, and only marabou plumes on the hook bend, and then saddle hackle for the body. More to come... Bass were cruising instead of on their beds Saturday. Caught one on a Grasshopper and lost one bringing it in as well.  Nice day with lots of social distancing room! Here are details on tying the "No Name Fly"....
