Size 6 black thread
Gold/brass bead chain eyes

Your favorite head cement

Tie in the eyes and cover the shank with thread.

Tie in at the bend of the hook.  I leave about a hook length out.   Others like the tail end shorter or longer.


Palmer the skin tightly and keep the layers from bunching up.

What is that used for catch'n cats in the alley? Scarey rat?  What does it look like after it hits the water? Oh I get it ...Catfish Fly!

Puck:
This fly is actually one of my 3 freshwater winter "go-to" flies.

Fish it slow, because at this time of the year the fish slow down too.

In the water it looks alive with the squirrel hair dancing with the slightest movement.

I've caught 'gills, LMB, catfish, aand crappie so far on this fly.

More of my winter favorites posted soon.
