Ron's Comments On This Pattern:

The only thing I changed on this was the summer sable hair and changed it to silkworm silk.

From Joseph D. Bates' Book, Streamer Fly Tying and Fishing:
"Pike Perch will feed heavily on schools of trout perch, expecially during the spawning season when these little minnows run towards and into the creeks. This pattern, the Ghost Shiner, and the Silver Darter are fine when fly fishing for the pike perch."
