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.
