body silver tinsel

wing white bucktail, extending langth of hook, heavy

notes: Have caught smallmouth bass and some giant pickeral (30+inches) on this pattern. No, this is not a lie. I have caught fish on bright days, but this pattern seems to work best in medium to low light days. Fish fly slow, like a wounded shiner. Very basic pattern.
