tied by deeky
Fly Type: Streamers,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Material List:
Hook: Mustad 9674, size 8
Thread: Danville Flymaster 6/0, black
Tail: Hackle, red
Rib: Oval tinsel, gold
Body: Flat mylar, copper
Underwing: Bucktail, red
Overwing: Squirrel tail, natural gray
Collar: Hen hackle, brown
Tying Instructions: It's pretty straight forward. This was originally tied as a trout pattern and was much more sparse in the collar. It also originally had a gold mylar body, but I like the copper better to contrast with the gold rib. As tying goes, tie as you like.
