Created by Bob Church

Uses

Imitates baitfish. Tandem patterns (two hooks) such as this one have better action and hooking abilities than flies that are tied on extra-long hooks.

How to Fish

Use the count-down-and-retrieve or slow retrieve presentation. The wind drift tactic can also be productive.
