Jig fly - one for the perch
« on: June 07, 2019, 15:44:03 PM »
Tied on a Gamakatsu size 2 stinger hook that has been bent slightly so that when the dumbbell eyes are tied on it then it will fish hook-point-up - so you can bump it along the bottom.

Recipe: white and chartreuse bucktail wing, red marabou belly, spun olive marabou collar...

That will work, nice.

As Shakespeare said, it is better to have hooked and lost than never to have hooked at all.

Bet that works in the salt too. I posted a picture a while back of an Epic #3 being used in the salt for bonefish and the flies he was using were not too disimilar. Nice work Mr Laraway  :z16

Living with deep, full breaths is the way of the trout. Fish, it seems, are the ultimate teachers in breathing.
