Capped Baitfish

This fly worked for me out in Corpus, I caught about 50% of my speckled trout on it, and it was rather easy to tie, and also cast. In fact, it casted so well compared to some other flies that I exclusively used this fly on my 3rd day fishing.
This is rather easy to tie, and hard to mess up. The Fish Masks really make tying this easy, just get your materials on the hook, then slip over the mask and whala! You have a finished fly! Really is a great fly to use and tie.

Here is a list of materials I used on the fly.
Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 in size 1
Thread: Veevus Power Thread 140 in Brown
Weight: .015 Lead Wire
Flash: Pearl Flashabou
Body: Congo Hair in Polar Bear, Caddis Tan, and Dark Brown
UV Resin: Solarez "Bone Dry"
Cap: Fish Skull Fish Mask size #6
Cap Adhesive: Fletch Tite
Cap Eyes: 5MM 3D eyes

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.
