COMMENT This pattern is the suggestion of Joe Bates. In his classic "Streamer Fly Tying and Fishing" he has a chapter describing how to select flies based on the baitfish that they imitate. When he comes to the golden shiner he indicates that a very simple fly is all that is necessary and gives the pattern above. The only note in construction that he adds concerns the the body shape of the golden shiner. Unlike many other baitfish it has a deeper body ( dorsal to ventral ) and accordingly the body should replicate this.
