    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day

    Interesting fly!

    What hook size do you tie this on?

    I am not sure if it looks like a tadpole, mussel or toad.
    What I am sure of, it looks to much like a good mouthful of food for the fish to let it pass.
    Baie mooi.

    Thanks Korrie,

    A Toad is a Tadpole you're missing the Crab part. If you see the fly in real life the triggers and possibilities will hit you between the eyes.

    From the side, it has a lovely profile, from the bottom the sillhoutte is great.
    The movement, from the heavier eyes, giving the dipping/jigging, to the tail, giving the movement, with the bit of flash.
    Alles in een.

    Correct the bottom silhouette is what makes this pattern i.e 3 in 1, possibly 4 in 1 if you consider juvenile barbel but to be honest I never had them in mind juggie, sies...!
