Mc Shad

Recommended Posts

Rich Mc was quite kind and generous to send me some of his new eyelash shad flies which were featured in the last issue of the Bulletin and also some sample yarns. I had good success with Rich's new shad flies on the Fox. I also had been playing with the eyelash samples that he sent me by adding deer hair head to the fly. Last night, I thought of an idea to spice up the fly by adding different colors of egg yarns for the tail.




Please let me know what you all think.

Thanks Rich, Rob, and John.


wow! what a display. they look fine but how is the movement in water with the added tail. mc rich

The fly (w/o the added tail) was very productive on the Fox. I've been using it on the line up with other CF Muddlers. But, I have no idea how the added tail would affect the fly. It may cause more movement of the tail or may cause the fly to spin. I'll report back when I have a chance to fish it.
