It's tied on a 3/0 mustad 3407.... no smaller
Deadly in topwater salad
Wow! I had never thought of that. I may need to tie some of those.

Helps fill the body up nicely. I wrapped the shank in between with large Ultra Wire to get a good drop.

I used a #1 Gami B10S Stinger because they have a nice, wide gap. Don't bend them too much or they will break. High tying with bucktail is nothing new. It's been around for years in the North East and is an awesome way to buid wide sided bodies. I originally learned this technique from a guy at a shop in Maryland where I grew up but that was for some huge baitfish patterns for big Stripers. It rides amazing with the Ultra Wire on the shank and looks really good in the water.

Yeah I'm aware. I was actually kind of amazed at the amount of press Thomas Harvey's been getting on that one here lately.

I recall learning about it around 2001 when somebody was using circle hooks and super hair for them, and it was in Fly Tyer or FFISW or something.

Isn't that the Carolina Fly guy? He ties some nasty stuff!

My buddy down here also showed me one a couple years ago that he fishes the lights with. It's a smaller bendback all high tied with Farrar Flash Blend down the shank. That stuff works great too.
