    Nice one Bob. Is that squirrel for the under body? Nice and fully dresses.

    As I understand, it is Bob.

    The ones I fish are a little different from this one but not by much. I am not a fly tier and have always liked the tried and true patterns.

    I tie a bass/panfish fly that is a Krystal bugger with a hackle collar as opposed to palmered hackle on the body, and it has barbell eyes like a Clouser so it rides hook point up. Sz 12-6; 3 or 4x long streamer hooks

    I will agree, but I prefer mine to be a size 2.

    The only change I have been doing lately is to go with a lighter jig hook, 1/64 ounce to make it easier to cast. This fall I caught a nice bow on the fly in stained water on a local spring creek.

    If I was down to one fly I think it would be a black and grizzly woolly bugger in size 8. I've caught a lot of bass up to 20 inches long as well as many nice bluegills with it.
