Articulated fly suggestions

Recommended Posts

I've recently been focusing a lot on tying articulated streamers. I mainly fish small ponds with bass up to 2 or 3 pounds. The water conditions vary a lot depending on the day but generally it's a little muddy. What articulated patterns do you guys use for bass? I'd love to see any and all ideas.

I don't really tie that many articulated flies.  I did tie some articulated Woolly Buggers for my Canadian trip at the end of August, but I didn't use them.  So they'll sit in my fly box till next spring.  I'll give them a shot for largemouth and smallmouth on the lakes we fish up in the Poconos.  They're unweighted and I added eyes to them.   I used a large Fish Skull articulated shank for the front and a 3/0 Daiichi 2461 streamer hook for the back.  Hackle is either saddle or schlappen. They run 6 to 7 inches long.  I tied them in the three colors that I've had success with when I've fished Woolly Buggers,  The patterns even have names.
