Jschmidt63- what is the recipe for that fly?
Posted 13 April 2008 - 05:17 PM
i tie grass shrimp,i use mustad 9672,in #8 & #10.if i weight them i use a piece of lead wire in .35 dia. a little shorter than the hook. a few strands of pearl flash and some silver mylar for whiskers and flash ,and for body medium pearl estaz.
i trim the estaz on the top and sides,add a little color with a felt pin and man do the blue gill and chinks love this fly .
i fish this fly weighted deep and un weighted shallow with much success.
