A simple bait fish on tube for which I've replaced the bucktail with a combination of large EZ tube as fiber support and some cheap synthetic fibers I found on Ebay. It gives enough volume to the streamer and keeps low weight even when is wet. The streamer I did here is about 18cm long and because it's 95% synthetic materials (except the saddle feathers), it's very light and I'd say it can be used with a #6 line.

Looks awesome. I've got to try this in a shad pattern.

Very nice. All of your videos are great.



A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.
