    A great go-to pattern for smallies and spots, but we have found it to be a good pattern for reds.

    I’ll bet a Walleye would just smoke that thing! Gonna have to give it a try this summer as my home river is full of ‘eyes.

    Sounds great, I have a tutorial on you tube and I have them up on the website for sale too. So you can try them out and post up a good tr down the line.

    Peter, Where do I find the you tube tutorial?
    My home river is just now becoming fishable. We had incredible floods here in Southern Alberta, I am downstream of both the Oldman and Bow River watersheds, they actually come together to form the South Sask River, we were on the receiving end of all the floodwaters so I haven’t had the opportunity to fish or do much in the way of tying this summer. I am ready now for sure!

    Justin I live in Mobile, AL. So any of the delta waters or around the island work well.

    Jeff I’ll post the link for you. All you have to do is add things like palmers chenille or whatever else to jazz it up.


    Nice tutorial!

    Peter, thanks for the link. Very cool fly. Just tracked down a couple of materials I didn’t have,(No fly shop nearby so I look for new tying stuff when away from home) now if I can get some tying in between duck hunts. Don’t know where the summer went.


    Curious, do you fish this pattern for red fish during the winter months, or do you find that it has too much flash for the clear cold water? I have been tying some more muted patterns for use during the next few months, but I am curious for your thoughts on that issue.

    Also, can you comment on your weed guard? Wondering if you use that same loop for red fish, or if maybe you cut it to “whiskers” for getting over the oysters?

    Thanks for the post; I will give it a try. If I can catch a fish with it, you know it is good.

    FWIW, Craig lives in Georgia and is an accomplished striper guide. I believe he developed the pattern for stripers but I like seeing how you are using it for red fish. Craig is also about one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. He regularly attends FFF festivals as a featured fly tier and always welcomes someone pulling up a chair for a minute or an hour.
