Smallmouth fly pattern - Ugly Kong
I'm heading out to the stream tomorrow. Maybe some smallmouth bass will hammer my topwater flies. I may tie on a few panfish flies too. With the weather dropping about 10 degrees and the evenings cooling down, tomorrow morning should be an enjoyable outing. Whereas, the last few times I went fishing, it was at least 104 - 108 degrees.
I've been tying up flies today. The pattern in the photo is my take on the King Kong but with a larger hook. The design calls for elk hair as the 3 wings. I lost my elk hair and deer hair. I can't find that stuff anywhere!!
Anyways, just throwing up a photo to share with my friends and readers. If you are on Instagram, my ID is smallie74.
