    Default Bait Fish Pattern

    Hello All...

    Here is a baitfish I tied up for my up and coming fooshing trip...

    Let me know what you guys think...

    Step 1 - Attach Lead Wire to Hook shank...note the foam on hook point, I did that after loosing a pint of blood from all the holes in my fingers...eeeiiisshhh

    Step 2 - Anchor the lead wire with thread

    Step 3 - Tie in White Fibre for tail and belly portion

    Step 4 - Tie rest of Belly and Sides in White SF Blend

    Step 5 - Tie in Copper coloured Wing 'n Flash to represent Lateral Line

    Step 6 - Tie in Light brown and Brown blend for top sections of body

    Step 7 - Tie in Red Flash on Sides (representing bleeding etc), tie in Brush for Head.

    Step 8 - Brush the fly and trim

    Step 9 - Glue on Eyes and carry out final trimming...

    There is Shammers attempt at a bait fish...roll on Tigers

    nice one !!!
    What ever you do never confuse Fishing With catching Fish !!!!

    But your reasoning has a fatal flaw; it overlooks the fact that to comprehend it requires that one rub a few brain cells against each other. The heat thus generated produces the light that illuminates the fact, but alas, not everybody has the resource required to fuel the process --SG

    Like the idea of the little cork goodie over the hook point.

    I am constantly either poking holes in my fingers or snapping off my thread just as I get into the groove with my wraps

    Hi there

    T(r)ied a similar pattern over the weekend for saltwater.

    Your fly is very nicely tied. If I may make a suggestion - if you intend fishing for tigers with this fly I would strongly suggest that you add some epoxy from the hook eye to just over the eyes. Without that the eyes will not last more than one or two hits from a tiger, and with the hookup rate on tigers being what it is you might wreck 3 or 4 flies before you bring one to the net.

    Cheers

    Nice tie JMSP! That'll smack a tiger.
    Tie more, but put some more gold flash in it, maybe even more of a red throat/collar...reckon the tigers love it.
