The Batistou Special.
Materials:black foam,black thread 6/0,black rooster hackle,white ,orange or fluo green polypropylene.hook size 14.
This fly was created by my friend Jean-Baptiste (Batsitou
) to fish big chub but we also caught browns and rainbows with it.Allan (Pocono) tested it when he fished with me last year and really liked it.He tied some when he was back in the US and could check how effective it is on trout.
Cut a little strip of foam and fix it onthe hook.
Turn the thread ,stop around two third of the hook length...tie the foam again.
Put the white fibers then the hackle.
Turn the hackle and cut the"wing"
Make the head...cut the foam....that's all
Sometimes I tie it starting from the eye of the hook...
