Susquehanna Shiner

Read the whole article on the Susquehanna River

This is my most recent imitation of the river shiner, probably the most prevalent baitfish in the area. I took the pattern from a saltwater fly tied by Mike Martinek at a United Fly Tyers´ meeting and adjusted the color scheme. The best color so far has been olive over white, but I'm tying plenty of gray/white and violet/white.
