Presentation Tips: This very simple tie allows you to create a wide variety of imitations for both warm and cold water applications. You can make solid Olive, Black, White or whatever color you want. You can also use a light color and pattern the body like a young Perch or Bass or generic fry. You can use one color for the body and one for the tail, or two different colors in the tail, it's up to you!
Fish it according to what you are imitating. A dead drift is always a safe starting place. I've caught several species of Sunfish, Crappie, Perch, Smallmouth, Trout, Carp, White Bass and one Snapping Turtle on these.
