Tandem hickory shad imitation
tied by Dble Haul
Fly Type: Bucktails/Deceivers,
Target Species: not available Bluefish, Striped Bass,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Hook: Gamakatsu SL12 Bluewater, 8/0 (6/0 for stinger)
Thread: Pink, 3/0
Tail: Three pair of white hackles with pearl flashabou and white bucktail on mono extension
Body: Pink Marabou and assorted colors of hackle (primarily white with accents of peach and lavander) with accents of white and pink bucktail
Body flash: Pearl flashabou
Throat: Pink marabou
Back: Long peacock
Eyes: Green 3D prismatic
Tying Instructions: The extension tail is made by securing a piece of 80 pound test mono between two vises as described in [i]Pop Fleyes[/i]. Several such tails can be made in one sitting.
The first attached picture shows the fly (about 13") that I used to catch my personal best striper. It's a bit banged up, but it gives a general idea of how the stinger hook is placed (reverse snelled to the front hook with 50 pound fluoro). This fly still looks good in the water. The fluoro between the hooks and the mono tail extension prevent this fly from being rigid in the water. It kinda slithers along.
The second attached picture shows the same fly without a stinger hook, but with the mono tail extension. This unused fly is a good representation of what the first fly looked like before use in regards to color accents. This fly is about 8 or 9" long.
Presentation Tips: Slow and low when searching, fast and fleeting when fish are worked up on shad.
