Panfish Dry

OK, I'm gonna need to catch plenty of panfish for some fish frys. The crappie stick to 3 foot of water or less and sight fishing is the most practical and effective method of catching. I am not much of a dryfly tyer but this pattern was too cool not to share.

hook: standard dry (this is a size 12)
tail: purple hackle fibers
Dubbing: purple angora goat
shellback: Antelope with Zap-a-Gap
Wings: Your favorite winging material (I like translucent wrapping paper)
hackle: strung purple saddle hackle

I like the antelope in this fly, simply because it floats even better than deer hair, and it needs to if its to be used as a lake "twiching" fly. Also, be careful about the wings. If you place the wings in an angle greater than 45 degrees from the back, it gives new meaning to the term spinner :eyecrazy:
