#15-2013 Mr. Hayes Special - Alan Grombacher #15-2013 Mr. Hayes Special - Alan Grombacher


Tied by: Alan Grombacher
Originated by: Alan Grombacher

Hook: Mustad 79666 or other keel hook
Thread: Black 6/0
Weight: Copper wire
Tag: Silver mylar tubing
Butt: Red thread
Body: Silver mylar tubing
Wing: White bucktail then Chartreuse bucktail
Head: Black
Eye: White with black pupil

Notes: Alan designed the pattern to skim through the weeds of Wisconsin's Lake Geneva in pursuit of small mouth bass and other warm water hunters. The pattern is named in honor of Alan's high school biology teacher, an accomplished anger and fly tyer. The Mustad 79666 is used because of the keel and with some added weight of lead or heavy copper wire, the streamer is virtually weedless. The fly has been successful getting into any spot a weedless streamer pattern is needed. The pattern was first tied around 1975 and the chartreuse and white has been a triumphant combination in the weedy waters bass love.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
