Thread: panfish flies

    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.

    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.

    step 2: attach marabou right before the bend of the hook.

    step 3: tie on TWO strands of copper wire and cut off the excess.

    step 4: twist dubbing onto thread and wrap forward (make sure to leave a space between dubbing and eyes)

    step 5: wrap the copper wires forward in an evenly spaced pattern. tie off and trim excess.

    step 6: tie in a bundle of poly yarn where the dubbing ends.

    step 7: tie in the grizzly hackle

    step 8: twist more dubbing on the thread and wrap toward the head. wrap over and around the eyes to cover the middle with dubbing.

    step 9: wrap the hackle forward and tie off. trim the excess.

    step 10: trim the marabou and the poly yarn. now go fish it!

    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.
