A New Creation, Don't Know What to Call it

6 posts in this topic


I came up with this after tying a 7 inch long clouser to mimic plastic stick baits and worms that Im fond of using for bass in spring and summer.  I wanted a fly that would ride point up, jig like a clouser, be at least 7 inches, be capable of being cast comfortably on an 8 wt, pushed a lot of water, would pulse and move with with the jigging motion of the retrieve, and could be used in multiple water and weather conditions.  I used a kind of Jig n Pig concept (making a "skirt" around a tail) coupled with a clouser design.  



 



Its about 9" total.  



 



Hook Gamakatsu Saltwater 2/0



Thread:  Black and chartreuse thread, .006 mono



Tail:  Black and blue SF blend tied clouser style



Under skirt:  Chartreuse SF blend tied as you would for a EP baitfish top and bottom, Light blue SF blend tied EP style on each side



Over skirt:  White arctic fox tied "EP style" on all four sides, Teal Marabou tied top and bottom



Eye:  Painted dumbell eye-Large size



 



I have no clue how this goofy looking thing will work, but I figured I'd share it.  The last pic is crap, but I added it to show the front profile.  I didnt really trim anything after tying, I wanted it to be kind of messy

My GF saw it in the water and said "It looks kinda like those 80s metal guitarists headbanging".  So Im calling it the "Hair Band Headbanger" lol.



 



Hopefully I get to throw it in some fishy water soon.  I managed to stick the first largemouth of the season in 45 degree water this weekend on one of my baitfish patterns, itching for the warmer weather.
