Pike tickler???

Might tempt snaggletooth with the classic color combo?

Tried to avoid creating a “chuck and duck” monster by using lighter weight materials.

Hook: 5/0 offset
Tail: red marabou on white dragontail
Body: CCT Body Fur (hard to see the built in flash)
Hackle: red saddle and gold metal flake legs (again hard to see metal flake sparkle)
Eyes: craft store red plastic bead chain (party favor bead necklace)

That’ll get em Bill. My favourite light weight pattern especially for those windy days is a basic deceiver pattern, retains almost no water and cuts wind pretty well, and I find saddle feathers hold up to teeth reasonably well. This combo should work well though, let us know how it fishes.

Wow, I need to fish for your perch Nelson. Mine all seem to go for small minnow imitations, even the larger ones. Yours must be world class to take a fly this size.

Had hoped for your input Nate. Those old Heddon bass lures in red and white were able to coax the bass into striking. Maybe this will too. I’m not a species snob. I’ll Take whatever hits. LOL.

Thanks Doug. Once the water isn’t solid, I’ll give this a whirl and see what interest it draws. @Oldsalt
