Type of fly American Shad fly
Originator of pattern if known  
Tied and Submitted by MoscaPescador
Level of tying experience needed to tie this pattern Beginner, a fairly simple pattern using basic tying skills
Materials listed in order of tie in:
Hook Standard shank size 6-8 Targus 3908T here
Thread White Danville's Flat Waxed Nylon
Eyes Medium beadchain, gold or silver
Tail Marabou, fluorescent pink here
Body Working thread
Head Thread
Special tying notes Coat the entire body with head cement for durability. Beadchain eye can be replaced with a dumbbell eye for weight. It gets its name from the fluroescent pink marabou bleeding through the white thread. Last year I tied some up for the shop. It became the hot fly. This season, I will be tying lots of them. At least they only take about 1.5 minutes to tie.
Target species American Shad
Fishing notes I fish this on the swing with a sink tip or shooting head line.
