tied by Piker20
Fly Type: Crease,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass, Peacock Bass, Pike, Snook, Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Material List:
Hook: Saltwater #1
Thread: Black 8/0
Weed guard: 25lb mono
Butt: Chartreuse wire small
Tail: Original calls for 4-8 saddle feathers. Here Ostrich herl and marabou
body: Craft foam
Eye: stick on
Head: Epoxy/UV resin

Tying Instructions: Tie wire in at hook bend and make 5-7 touching wraps down the bend. Tie in two lengths on mono that will reach around to the hook eye when finished. With thread at half way mark of shank, tie in 5 strands of herl, 3x hook length. fold butts back and tie down. Tie good pinch of marabou on top. You should have a portion of bare shank between eye and wing.
Cut foam 2x hook length and just narrower than hook gape. fold foam in half lengthwise and make hole in middle crease (for hook eye to poke through). Trim one side so it slopes. You don't want a blocky rectangle. Apply bit of CA glue to the thread between eye and wing. Slide foam over eye, slope down. When dry bring mono forward under hook and adjust length to provide weed guard for hook point. Tie in at the eye. Apply eyes. Use resin to make a small head and hold eyes on.
Presentation Tips: Should float on its side or at a tilt. fish in and around weeds and brush and grab a beauty.
