I first tied this fly up for fishing some stocked ponds close to where I was living during the winter season. It?s a knock-off of another fly I?d seen somewhere. The materials are a little different than the original, and I?m not sure what it was called. I?ve had a lot of success fishing this fly in still waters with a sink tip line, as well as a floating line. Trout, walleye, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, crappie, and northern pike seem to enjoy eating it as much as I like fishing it. I haven?t fished it in moving water much, but what little I have, has been pretty successful.
