The Thunder Creek series created by Keith Fulsher in 1962 were a revolutionary new method for tying bucktail baitfish imitations. Fairly simple to tie, these patterns are amazingly realistic looking when stripped through holding water and have been known to catch some monster fish.
Hook: #8-10, 3x-6x long
Top: Green bucktail
Underside: White bucktail
Middle: Krystal flash, four strands
Eyes: Painted or stick-on
