The Bream Killer - A sunfish and crappie pattern

Recommended Posts

The bream killer fly pattern was requested by one of my subscribers a while back. I decided to give it a go, and it seems like a pretty good pattern. Somewhat simple to tie, and im sure it will be effective. I can see more than just sunfish, bluegill, and crappie eating this though. I suspect bass, and other warm water fish should eat it as well.

A fish-getter, for sure. I never tie with legs as it is frustrating when little fish grab the leg and pull on the fly, making a false take. I do this mainly with poppers and some other flies. My trout water has loads of little shiners that make you think you have a trout but nothing when you set the hook. BTW, the do this with dry flies, too. If it's a store bought fly or popper, the legs are clipped off.

I didn't watch the video, but based on the picture, it'd probably work if you put it in front of a trout, too.
