This is my version of the James Woods Bucktail. This is the first one I ever attempted. I tied a second one this afternoon and will tie a couple more tomorrow. This is supposed to be a panfish fly that will also attract small bass. I have a feeling it will be popular with fallfish in the small flows near my home. Hope to test it out this year. Saw a tutorial from panfishonthefly.com.
Tied up some bass bugs yesterday. I prefer fishing top water for bass. A couple of years ago I rediscovered the Calcasieu Pig Boat. I tied up a couple on size 1 hooks and caught a few bass on them. Decided to up size them to take advantage of using a full spinner bait skirt rather than tying in individual skirt layers. These are tied on 2/0 hooks.
