Default White Bass flies

I ordered some fly tying material and to make a long story short, it was back-ordered and took me forever to get a refund. I plan on going up to hit the white bass run again fairly soon. I don't feel like spending the gas money to go all the way up to Cabela's or Bass Pro for a few little things, so I improvised. They're not quite the same as what I usually tie, but I've got a good feeling that the white bass will love these guys. (I usually use marabou as a tail and put a small propeller blade on the bead-head ones since the water can get kinda dirty.)

That fly should be a killer on the WBs. I fish a large impoundment for them and my go to fly is a simple bead head with pearl flasabou. White with flash and movement seems to always be they're weakness.

Those ties look very similar to what I use for snook at night, but I can't see why white bass wouldn't eat them right up.

Also, and this is particularly random, but I thought you had used one of those nymphheadz from the guys who make fishskullz on the second of the two shown. As I looked closer I realized that what I thought was the eye-bump was actually a reflection of you taking the photo. Kinda neat

Cool! Now that you said something, I do notice a giant hand there lol!

I like the idea that they're simple. A zonk strip and some pearl estaz!
