COMMENTS Jerry's Smelt is actually a variation of Joe's smelt, the only difference being the use of pearl myar tubing as the body instead of silver mylar tubing as Joe's smelt originally called for. My version uses pearl EZ-Body braid, includes a sparse underwing of red bucktail, and uses red thread for the head. Both of the patterns mentioned earlier have black heads. To secure the prismatic stick on eyes and fill the gaps caused by using these eyes, the head was finished with 5 minute epoxy to a nice round shape.
