    Default White over red synthetic baitfish patern

    During the past couple of years someone on the Swap of the Month tied a streamer with white over red craft fur with doll eyes. Well, this is one of my favorite panfish flies and a chunk of ice took my last one. Anyone want to take credit for this great fly and offer up a materials list?
    Thanks,
    Bill

    I can maybe do one, since I am the king of craft fur. I have more types than anyone..

    Bill,
    I don't think that was a SOTM pattern. I have all of them mounted and nothing with white over red and doll eyes. The closest one is a Clouser Varation with dumbell eyes You tied.

    Bill: Thanks for the update. I'm not sure where I got these then.

    Bob: Not quite but, similar. Pure white craft fur wing on top, bright red on the bottom. Quarter inch doll eyes. No flash, no marabou. Killer green sunfish fly. Go figure. Thanks for your information.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    I think this post generated more views than any other one I have posted. Anyone interested in a "White over red" swap?

    How long was the fly? And do you remember approximately what size hook it was tied on?

    I'd be up for a white over red swap! lol

    Karli:
    That's the problem. Bob's examples are not quite right. It was about 2 1/2 inches from nose to tail. The eyes were doll eyes and it was not weighted. It was shaped like a Rainy's pattern (see cabelas) but pure white over pure red. It as a large hook, 2, 4, 6. Here it is in the mouth of a 8.5" green...

    streamer, bugger, clouser ????
    there are lots of raineys flies on there.
    give a better idea and I might be able to come up with it...
    my pattern is pure white over red, does it need to be longer ???
