Todd Schotts came up with this simple fly and it has been very successful for him. Todd tied a couple and handed them to me at the Great Lakes Council Fly Tying Expo at the beginning of the month. Todd created this pattern while at the annual smallmouth outing the Michigan Fly Fishing Club has every year.
Todd says it works great for smallmouth and carp. He power paints the eyes himself.
