Podobed's Lieutenant DanPrime Fly Company
This is a fly I've been sitting on for a while now, and it's time to release it. After many iterations, I've narrowed down 2 versions. This is the "half dressed" version.
"But you ain't got no legs, Lieutenant Dan...."
^That. lol. But there is a method to the madness. I know crawfish flies look really cool with big rabbit pincers and legs galore, but the bass don't think so. They see weapons of bass destruction.
Enter the Bassmaster Lure study.
"The test then continued, with one pincer removed, then a second pincer removed, and finally, the legs. The soft bait that had no appendages (no legs or pincers, just a body and tail) had the greatest number of strikes. "The final bait looked almost like a large shrimp,"
Whether fish eat-crawfish, shrimp, sculpins, madtoms etc....this fly will get the job done.
Tied on an Ahrex TP650 26 Degree Bent Hook.
*I also tie these on Daiichi 2546 hooks for saltwater specific use. Please mention if you want the stainless option in the order notes.
