    Grant, please add this to the SBS thread. Dankie ou maat.
    Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line;
    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook, With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey

    Default Sea -ducer

    A fairly recent pattern created by Chico Fernandez of Miami, Florida. Like most sea lures, it comes in a wide variety of colour permutations. It is used for such fish as sailfish,amberjack, redfish, tarpon and dolphin.

    The Semper is a great fly. I hooked 3 consecutive Giant Kingfish on them in Mapotoland, (1) Olive (2) Chartuse (3) Black

    The sea - ducer is a tried and tested fly , looks similar to but in reality you can't compare it to the semper as the the semper ( AS Juan knows ) tail has to be tied in a particular fashion which gives it much more movement than a deceiver. Also Juan's description of the body makes for a big difference to tying a deceiver. Which is why Juan has such success with that fly. It was designed by Bob Popovicks and shown in his book Popfleyes. Hey Juan, how's the leeries lately, I am going to spend some time this winter targetting garrick with our sempers ( maye some profiles ) up this way. Lets see how it goes !

    I tied up a few of these last night and tested them in the pool.............i can see why kob will find them attractive.i tied in dumbell eyes and the fly has an awesome action.i reckon on a slow slip along the bottom they will kill...........

    Yip ... I tied one in chinchilla for use in the EC to imitate a mullet, no luck that trip but then again, I found no Kabeljou at all.

    One thing I can offer, the stiffer/more packed/bulkier the front hackles, the better the swimming action of the tail hackles.
