These flies are easy to tie, and very effective on many species across the fly fishing spectrum. From freshwater fish including trout, bass and walleye, to saltwater fish like speckled trout, redfish, striper, and false albacore, This fly will catch just about any fish that is predatory on smaller baitfish. Its also pretty durable, and will last through many hard strikes from toothy fish.
The movement from the craft fur is incredible, and really does seem to be very realistic. The fly also looks great, and has just the right amount of sparkle to attract the fish, but not spook them. It can be tied in a wide range of colors as well. I tie this on a Gamakatsu SS15 hook in size 2, but you can use a heavier wire hook for larger fish species, and a thinner hook for trout. You want the length of the hook shaft to be about the same though, so keep that in mind. Also, you can use a stronger thread than I used, just if its thicker, make sure and use less thread wraps. I prefer the thinner personally because its easier to keep the materials situated and even with it. To give some extra weight to this fly, you could make a few wraps with some lead wire as well. But I prefer this fly to suspend or slowly sink the way it does.
I tied up a few of these, and am selling them on eBay. One of which will be the exact one I tied on this video if you are interested in purchasing them. I only have one set available, so get it while its still up for sale! – www.ebay.com/itm/202220567593
