Nice fly. Definitely a winner in my book. I just love the "action shot" of the fly in the water too.
Freshwater bass will constitute most of my summer fishing (but not the fall!) and I may tie up a few of these flies. I have a stellar largemouth pond near where I work in NH and this would be just the ticket for coaxing biguns out of the partially submerged bushes that ring the shoreline. I have had many a sleigh ride while fishing from my float tube in this pond.
