Default panfish flies

looking for new panfish fly patterns!
heres one of mine-


I am sorry but the picture was too large and blowing out the Portal page. Please resize your photo and repost. It is a great looking fly and others will want to see. Make sure the photo is small enough that you can see the right side of the screen.

Thanks, Frank

That does look great. Would you might putting up some basic tying instructions?

Also, how do you fish it? I could imagine throwing it into still water and hopping it back to me.

materials:
green dubbing
copper wire
black marabou
grizzly hackle
dumbell eyes
white poly yarn

(i have made this fly with many, many differnt combinations of materials)


step 1: attach eyes by wrapping at angle in between each eye. i usually add a drop of fly head cement to secure the wraps.

i use this fly for bluegill and other panfish. i usually let it drop and then i do a jerk retrieve. i hope this helps! good luck fishing!

Hi rmooney,

Thanks for reposting. You can go about twice the size you reposted. Take a look at these pictures. That will give us some more detail.

Frank
