The fish measured 18 inches long and 12 inches around. The thing was a beast.

The Jester is named after actual Jesters that you see in movies wearing all the crazy bright colors with a red hat (google it if your unfamiliar). We decided on that because of the loud color pattern we went with for the fly. Its basically just EP fiber,lots of flash, reverse tied bucktail and a spun deer head and some schlappen. The main idea comes from some anglers in WI. I could work in a step by step somewhere on this forum if I can figure out where to do it on the site. (Just joined so extreme newb).

Here's the fly on the bench. The colors are crazy for a reason, method to the madness...
