Default Re: Shad?

We had a Shad guide from Northern CA give us a video presentation at a club meeting. Looked popular up there. Guys were shoulder to shoulder, literally.
He helped us tie shad flies before the meeting. Pretty simple flies. Here's what I remember of the recipe (all of my stuff is still in storage or I could give you a pic of my ties):
Hook: pretty heavy chrome hook
Eyes: Heavy, big barbell
Tail: Krystal Flash
Body: Red or green Amnesia wrapped to look like segments.
Head: Fire orange thread (figure eight over barbells; tapered behind eye.
