This is the fly that everyone wants , tied in its original weighted format. Also fly that everyone fishes with when we go Bassfishing both in the UK and on Cape Cod.
My clients have landed well over 3000 Bass using this pattern. That sounds profound or inflated . Im playing it safe with that figure .
Tied long and skinny to resemble a sandeel. You have to swim this fly in the water to fully appreciate just how deadly it is. Its also a tough fly built to withstand large numbers of captures and releases. If it gets messed up just take a comb and brush it through and it comes back to life.
Lure Anglers will love this weighted version for teasers. I landed countless Bass last year using this in conjunction with a Patchinko or Z claw . Fish the fly 12 inches ahead of the Popper and watch your surface hit ratio double . It will !!!
Over the years I have come to jokingly call it '' The Church of the Livebait fly '' Guys fish with me and then use it from that day forth ! Amen !
