Glimmer Perch (Swap Entry)

This is my entry for the warmwater swap.

Hook: Size 2
Thread: 3/0, chartruese
Tail: Olive over yellow and lime blended bucktail
Tail flash: Pearl flashabou
Body: Olive ice chenille
Wing: Olive over yellow and lime blended bucktail
Eyes: Red mirage eyes
Head: Epoxy, Softex, or equivalent

This fly slicks down really nice in the water, offering a nice juvie perch profile. Perch don't have red eyes, but the use of red eyes in this pattern seems to make a definite difference. If the wing doesn't lay down enough in the water to conform to the desired profile, just trim the stiff barbs of ice chenille right behind the wing that support it.

This fly produced for me big time last year. I hope that doesn't change.
