Sedotti Slammer (to the best of my recollection)

Hello folks,

I spent some time this week tying up a handful of Sedotti Slammer like flies. I modified Sedotti's tie a little bit - mostly because I forgot how he actually ties them! Nothing innovative here on my part. I am just posting instructions for a nice fly.

1. Tie in a lead (or non-lead) keel to keep the fly upright in the water. Here I used an Owner Aki 3/0 hook. See pic #1.

2. Tie 2 Schlappen hackles on each side of the hook shank.

3. Tie in white bucktail all around the hook shank (wing and throat). Sometimes I take greater care with a hi-tie wrap to get more spread out of the bucktail. But I have a new step (#7) that makes the hi-tie less important. See pic #2.

4. I tied in some pink and some purple and some pearl Krystal flash to the upper sides of the fly. Then I added 2 strands of Flashabou to each side of the fly.

5. I blended lavender and pink bucktail and tied the blend on the back of the fly. Then I topped with some olive bucktail.

6. Tie in 10-12 peacock herl strands on the top of the fly. See pic #3.

7. Add some more white bucktail to the throat/underside of the fly. I added this step to get a fuller profile in the water.

8. Attach doll eyes with Goop and then epoxy up the head. Do not go nuts with the epoxy. I like placing the eyes far back from the eye of the hook but I found that if I push them too far back they are more likely to fall off. So watch out for that.

Voila, you have a real cow catcher. See last photo. I love this fly. I also tie them in black for night fishing around the rocks here in NH.

These flies are around 6 inches long and they cast well for a larger fly.

Tight lines,

Mike

Hi Doogue, This is a great fly and wonderfull tie. I've adapted the pattern somewaht for pike fishing and it is one of the best producers on the shallows for very large fish.
Hope you get a "big mama bass" to chase yours!

Good Times...

Doogue,

I remember the day you and Jeff showed me how to tie that fly. I also remember the next day when a cow engulfed it right in the surf line as you and your dad moved up ahead. Unfortunately I got a little over anxious trying to land her and broke her off in the wave break. Definitely one of my favorites. I think the key is the way those Schlappen hackles move in the current. I can't tell you how many times I was retrieving the fly in only to mistake it for a real fish.

No Marabou

Phil,

That is the base of the schlappen hackles. Those hackles are sort of a 2 for one deal: some wiggly ends for tail like movement and marabou like body filler at the stem of the hackle.

Are you making monster slammers for your shad spot or for the clave?

Mike

I'll bring one along. It's 18 inches and works! Very light and all wig hair.
