Default Identify this pattern

I work for a moving company. We were moving a house and I found this in the basement. It was going to be thrown away so I took it. Any idea what this pattern is?

Some sort of 'gurgler' tie, I don't have a name but a friend is catching silvers on a pink one like that right now. Good for anything that will hit a skimming popping lure on the surface.

Welcome to the forum, someone will name that for you soon I'm sure.

So it's a steelhead fly?

I'm new to fly fishing, is there anything else I could use this for? I live in alabama now so I mostly fish for bass, with the occasional trout trip.

Only reason I knew that fly was I had found it recently while searching for foam patterns to tie for Smallmouth bass. It took me a few minutes to remember where I had seen it.

That one would make a good LM bass fly as well I'm sure. Might be a little large for some panfish, but if there are bigger ones around, like large Bluegills or Crappies, they'll eat it too!

IN all the years I've been flinging flies at bass, panfish & anything else, I've learned that labels applied to flies mean little to he fish. Some of my favorite flies for bass were intended for Steelhead & Salmon. (Intruders are wonderful for stream bass!)

Use it & let us know how you do!

I use Gurglers Patterns alot on still water lakes . When they have webby or hair bottoms like yours does many strikes come when it's sitting still at the top of the cast. If there is alot of frog, baitfish or large insect activity some slow popping is the trigger! Try letting it sit first you will be amazed at the hits that come from nowhere!
