SB Baitfish

tied by siestafred
Fly Type: General Saltwater,
Recommended Region: Southwest US,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Material List:
Hook: Mustad 34007 #2
Thread: Flat Waxed Red
Eyes: I-Balz
Tail: 5-6 Whiting "Bird Fur" Feather Tips
Flash: 4-6 Strands of Black Holographic on each side
Accent Body: Red Crystal Chenille (or Ice Dub. etc)
Body: Palmered Enrico Puglisi Streamer Brush
Tying Instructions: It's a bit tricky to palmer the brush, but it works well if you carefully pull/tease the fibers back as you work up the shank. Do a figure-8 wrap over the eyes, and 2-3 wraps in front, and tie off.
