John Desjardins Mark thats nice. I think that Bob Popovics has a similiar idea with multiple sand eels on a bend back hook.

I also remember seeing some Boyd Peifer flys tied on rubber worm hooks that had one part of the fly on the hook shank and another on the keeper . It gave motion between the parts.

Dble Haul Both flies have been used individually with some success...the perch component is just basically a surf candy. The picture could be better; it doesn't show the detail of the eyes and gills, and the subtle color blends are lost.

If I crank out a few more, I'll save some for you Q.

Quentin Very cool! Sort of like a built in teaser. I'd be happy to help field test it!

Have you already used the perch and/or bluegill as individual flies? I've had pretty good success with an experimental fly that I tied that's similar to the perch part of that fly.

Dble Haul

This is a freshwater version of a saltwater pattern originally developed by Captain Forrest Faulkingham. The saltwater version mimics a juvie mackeral chasing a silverside, and uses craft fur and a few other materials not used here. Here's my take on the pattern, geared towards bass and pike.

Hook: Size 4 streamer, 6XL
Thread: Mono
Tail: Olive over yellow super hair, with copper krystal flash between
Head: Teal over white super hair
Gills: Red sharpie marker
Eyes: Prismatic (back) or black sharpie marker (front)
Heads: Epoxy

This mimics a juvie yellow perch chasing down a bluegill fry. The rear fly (tail) is tied just like a standard surf candy pattern, tied off and epoxied, and then the front fry is tied in with tufts of super hair, tied off, and epoxied.

This fly hasn't been field tested yet.....wet lab work is needed.
