RE:Smallmouth Flies

Terry,

Try to tie some up in yellow perch colors yellow bottom brown top use a marker to add in different bands. There is a pretty good article in the recent Fly Tyer (Summer 2000) about a marabou candy fly that looks really easy to tie and adaptable for a wide range of species (SW and FW). I'd probably tie the clousers on SW hooks myself, size 4 or 6, even 8. Have you tried using craft fur for small clousers? You can get it at craft stores and flyshops in a bunch of colors. On real small clousers you might want to check out calf tail - (I read that too).

Good luck,

Pete
