Chuff's post reminded me i haven't posted any fly stuff recently. this should keep you busy for a little while. other synthetics can be tied the same way for different profiles and representations of salt baitfish.this one immitates the GL emerald shiner a seriously important baitfish for our inland oceans. well at long last i have completed my new state of the art studio and can finaly get some tutorials done. i have found this pattern to be pretty damn fishy and caught my best river bass to date with one tied with dumbell eyes. i find the unwieghted one fished on a sink tip has some very erratic action if given short, sharp strips as well. it's really a pretty simple fly but takes some time to get them right. pay special attention to which side should be longer when tying in the sections. i have played with this a bunch and i'm convinced this is the way to go. colors are up to you but i feel this one represented the emerald shiner very well. some smelt colors will have to be worked out before spring too. if a wider profiled fly is desired you just do more sections along the shank. two seems to be about right for our average 2.5" minnows.HOOK- DAIICHI 2450 #2-8n THREAD- WHITE 6/0n WING SECTION 1- LT OLIVE DNA HOLOFUSION OVERWHITE DNA HOLOFUSIOWING SECTION 2- SMOKE DNA FROSTY FISH FIBER OVER WHITE DNA FROSTY FISH FIBER FIBERn EYES- 3-D PEARL STICK ON EPOXIED ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Very nice and a great offering. The stateoftheartflytyingphotojournaliststudio is truly state of the art. But I do wonder if there is a way to incorporate a spinner or something into that?

i was thinking about one of those little propellors, or maybe a mister twister tail. those are probably even gayer.
