Designed by 'yours truly' for use on Cobbosseecontee Lake (Kennebec County, Maine) which has a good golden shiner population, as well as large and smallmouth bass that feed on them. My intent was to create a larger pattern, since this baitfish can grow to a fairly large size. The fly proved to be quite productive during a two week trial in July '99. Both types of bass seemed to take the fly readily, including its first victim - a 3 lb. smallmouth.
