tied by dsaavedra
Fly Type: Streamers,
Target Species: Panfish,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Material List:
hook: size 14

tail: small clump of white marabou, trimmed blunt

body: pearly white chenille

optional: color the body with sharpie for added realism.... coloring the back and tail with a brown sharpie is a good effect.
Tying Instructions: take marabou clump and fold in half, tie this on. clip the tail short so that the marabou is no longer in a "loop". strip a lil chenille from the thread core and tie on by the thread core. wrap forward and tie off. whip finish. add any coloration.
Presentation Tips: a very simple fly. it is also very effective. let this fly sink to desired depth and then strip it in in short quick jerks.
