    Default Crappie Fly

    The weather has cut into my fishing so I have been exploring fly patterns from the FAOL fly of the week entries. I found a fly by a fellow named wetfoot. From research I don't believe he is still a member.

    The fly is called Alpha - Omega and is touted as being a super product for steelhead. The more I looked at this fly the more I thought it would work on crappie and perhaps bass. I tied up some in different colors and hopefully will get a chance to try them come spring. I tied them on a Mustad 9672 size 10 in orange, yellow and brown.

    You can go to the search feature and enter Alpha and the fly will be on the top of the list.

    I would like to get your opinion as to using this fly for warm water critters and if so in what size.

    Thanks: Tim

    PS - if they don't work on crappie I guess I could go to the Rogue River and try for Steelhead.

    If you're targeting crappie, I would tie some up in black and chart, hot pink and chart, and just about anything with chart or black.

    You would probably do better to take this pattern and change the dry hackle to soft hackle because you will get a lot more action below surface than on top. Chartreuse or pink would be my preference, or chartreuse+pink.

    Look good.
    I will tie some up with a bead head and use the dry fly hackle.
    The dry fly hackle pushes more water and I think that helps.

    Thanks for the input. I just happen to have some pink chenille and some chartreuse marabou laying around . I will put them to use and hopefully I will remember to give them a try and let you guys know what occurs.

    Thanks Again: Tim

    How about some pictures Tim. That would help out as well.
