This is one of the cool bugs I saw Todd Schotts of Grizzly Flies tying up at the recent Midwest Fly Fishing Expo. Todd says this is an excellent fly for bluegill and crappie. The Whiting Black Laced Hen Hackle is sweet looking on this fly. Todd sent home a couple with me to take photos of and he included the material list below.

“I fish this with short, slow strips, and after each strip, a twitch. Sort of like a jig action. I tie these in two colors; Chartreuse and Orange.”
