Neat Slider

This is a topwater slider pattern I came up with:

Hook angle is key. The first one I constructed had the hook too deep in the foam. In addition, I took sandpaper and sanded the front nose down a little. Now, it dives perfectly every time and pushes alot of water. In addition, it makes a slight noise when pulled under the water. Yet to try it on smallies, but have caught largemouth and large sunfish on it already.

I think three or four hackle wraps between the block and tail would "perdy" it up some.

 

Yep. It is way too practical looking. Only fish would buy it :)

 

For one fly that slides dives and pops, you ought to try Edmonds' Stealth Bomber-also sort of an ugly duck. But it comes from the right state. Make it as pretty as you want.

 

My ugly version.

Nice instructions here.
