MIxed Media

 
tied by cornmuse
Fly Type: Streamers,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Imitation: Crayfish,
Material List:
Mixed Media - I have found this to be an excellent late summer/early autumn river smallie pattern. Obviously this is a variation of a Clouser. Tight lines!

Hook: Mustad 3366 size 2, 4, or 6
Thread: Rusty Orange 6/0
Eyes: Gold plated Deep Sea eyes
Belly: 6 to 10 strands of black speckled pumpkin sililegs
Flash Material: 4 to 8 strands of copper crystal flash
Wing: Red Fox tail fur, tied short and bushy. Don't comb out the underfur!
Tying Instructions: Tied in the fashion of a Clouser minnow. Secure the lead eyes. Tie the ten sili-legs in by folding over the tying thread and starting the tie in front of the eyes. Catch the legs with three or four wraps before making a collar behind the eyes. Invert the hook, add four strands of copper flash and then tie in the wing bushy and shorter than the sili-legs.
Presentation Tips: Fish this on a long flourocarbon tippet. Cast upstream or up-and-across and retrieve downstream with a hopping motion. A great crayfish imitation and an even better johnny darter imitation.
