The bugger is tied with sea dragon dubbing I found buried recently, but has a laser dub wing to tame the rubber legs down a bit. All the materials are on the top of the hook.

Both very nice and fish catchers for sure !

 

And may I ask, what materials are you using for the shad? Puglisi's fibers, Congo hair??? Would love to see how you tie that one.

Thanks

I prefer hook point down because I usually get a more positive hookup with my strip set; the streams I fish are not too snaggy. I use this fly for trout mostly.

Looks like a great popper.

A slightly modified version of the earlier hallow point fly. Hopefully I can wet a line to see it's profile in the water.

This is my Defenseless Craw, notice no claws. It is intended to swim not hop. I really need somewhere to try this. Anyone willing to show me a smallie wintering hole can get one of these babies. I think it will be a go to when the weather warms.

That is a neat style of fly. I haven't tied anything on a bent shank hook like that but I plan to. I would expect it to be somewhat weedless and should be great for swinging under and along wood.
