Crafty Point Up Baitfish

This fly uses a heavy dumbbell to keep the fly swimming hook point up. The way this fly is tied, the dumbbell is hidden with the craft fur and 3D eyes. This fly, being tied with craft fur, moves wonderfully in the water. The movement is much like a dying baitfish due to occasionally turning sideways slightly when being jerked.

Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 size 1/0
Fiber: Craft fur (white and chartreuse)
Hook Wrap: Pearl cactus chenille
Thread: Danville Fly Master - 70 Denier
Weight: Dumbbell Eyes - 5mm
Eyes: 3D eyes - 5mm
Adhesive: Fletch Tight
Head Cement: Solarez "Bone Dry" UV Resin

… 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.
