New Warm water Fly Fishing Pattern for Smallmouth & Panfish
Just found out Bret Bielema from Wisconsin is accepting the open coaching position at Arkansas . . . I guess that's cool. Not impressed but not let down . . . too much. Anyways, just tied up this pattern for bass and panfish. It's pretty similar to my Juicy Foam Flies. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be productive.
Just listed this fly on ebay . . . will probably sell sometime soon. I'm evaluating some fly fishing goals for next year. One goal I've already set is to catch 100 panfish - good sized panfish - possibly just bluegills or warmouth. Another is to hit more lakes and ponds for larger bass . . . and to do some more float trips for smallmouth.
It's always nice to sit down and throw some materials together. Sure, I didn't go too far outside the box but I'm happy with this pattern. I dug out some Elk hair or possibly a deer tail . . . will be incorporating it into more flies. I think if I can use more hair, maybe I can move more flies on ebay.
If anyone is interested in any of my patterns, I am more than happy to send a few your way.
