Hook Up Perch

Found a pattern on the Striper Archive . Charlie calls his pattern the "Hook Up Shad".

Hook: Owner 5138-141, 2/0 Bait hook
Body: Braided mylar, yellow with five or six turns of medium lead wire wraped on the hook at the bend.
Wing: Flashabou, yellow bucktail, black bucktail, green bucktail, and peacock herl.
Eyes: Stick on
Head: Yellow flat waxed nylon, finished with Loon Hard Head.

The lead wire helps the fly track upright, otherwise I found durring the swim trial that the fly swims on its side. The fly is nearly weed proof and fairly light so you can cast it with a 7 or 8 wt. Overall length is 4 inches.
