tied by deeky
Fly Type: General Freshwater,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Material List:
Hook: Mustad 9674
Thread: Uni Thread 8/0, olive
Tail/Back: Peacock herl
Body: Ostrich herl, olive/black
Head: Deer body hair, olive
Tying Instructions: Lay a thread base and tie in 6-10 peacock herls for the tail, but only tie down with a few wraps just ahead of the bend. Holding the peacock herl aout of the way, tie in a couple of strands of each color of the ostrich herl and wrap forward together to get mottled look. Pull peacock herl forward over body to form back. Spin a small bunch of deer hair for the head, preferably sparse.

**NOTE - This pattern was originally tied in Great Brittain with an olive/brown body and natural head. In order to match minnows here (and because I didn't have the brown ostrich herl), I adjusted accordingly.
