A few different styles of crappie flies for David. Basically all the same fly just different materials. All on size 10 jig hooks with various beads and colors of hackle.

Nothing fancy but they compete with the crappie jig spin fisherman quite equally. Top fly uses a zonker tail and flash chenille body, middle uses a mop fly tail and a few strands of flash, bottom uses marabou as the tail and a dubbed body. You can fill a box with these in any color combinations you fancy in very little time.

Is the hook when in the water oriented up or down? Do you wrap lead?

I’ve been thinking about putting the bead in front of the hook eye to try and get a vertical hanging jig/fly. Have some spinner shank wire cut offs I think would work good to extend in front of the eye.

@davenorris The fly rides horizontally with hook point up as I fish it. If you need to get down fast, you can indeed add weight to the hook shank. Most times I get bit when the fly is lifted up about a foot then allowed to fall slowly. Most strikes come on the drop in my waters. @ATanner Let me know how the vertical jigging thing works for you Gus. Sounds like you might be wishing to imitate the action of an ice fishing jig.

Oh yeah it’s definitely for ice fishing and for open water under a bobber. Finally getting some good ice making weather in southern parts of Michigan. Haven’t been on ice since being in northern Michigan at Christmas. It’s been a boring winter without ice. Hopefully be on crappie waters this weekend
