I got the idea for this fly from a fly designed for freshwater carp. I modified it slightly and thought it might make for a good benthic worm imitation for redfish or black drum, especially when those fish were tailing hard. The head and body of the fly is just barbell eyes and estaz. The tail of the fly is made from thin foam and cut using a hole-punch. I then use thin rubber (like used for crab legs) and thread onto a needle, and puncture the punches in the middle. On the last punch, I make a big knot to secure everything. The fly ends up looking like this ….. It’s made to stand straight up off the bottom, and it does. Here is a pic I tried to get with the fly in a glass of water: I may end up adding some additional “legs” between some of the punches to give the fly some more wiggle …. Haven’t had the opportunity to try it out just yet, but would love to throw this at some big tailing black drum and see what happens ….. AP
