Just a little perch imitation to tempt the larger, toothy predators.

Yellow chenille body, yellow and olive crystal web wing, hot orange marabou throat, orange stick on eyes.

Thank you Doug. Have to share today’s fishing expedition story. Hit one of my local warm water streams after a two day respite from the usual rain. Thought the waters might have settled down a bit, but no way. Fished the chocolate for a bit anyway using the bruiser Cheeto under a hopper dry as a strike indicator. Absolutely NADA. Thought I was going to be totally skunked. Started going thru the boxes and decided on that little frog indicator posted recently. Hunted around in the baitfish box and tied on a little fry pattern. The bass and panfish went nuts for the fry. Going to have to add a few to my “high, ugly, dirty water box. Summing up , had two of these chewed to ribbons. No eyes, tail, or egg sac left after repeated fish. Will check to see if I’ve posted the pattern and let you see it if you are interested.

@Oldsalt Hi again Doug. I did post the pattern mentioned above. Try searching for fry fly here to see it if interested.

@Oldsalt Now suggest you look through my posts rather than searching for fry fly Doug. Get way too many hits using that search criteria. Sorry for any confusion.

@123flytyer321 Hi Robert. I gave up commercial tying quite a long while ago so no, I’m sorry there is no website.
