SMP - Skip Morris Panfish


Pattern Recipe:

  • Hook:  Standard nymph hook (2x long)
  • Eyes:  Lead or brass dumb bells, bead chain, or mono
  • Ribbing:  Tinsel or wire in color of choice
  • Body:  Floss, thread or dubbing in color of choice.  To make the fly more durable coat a floss or thread body with UV resin
  • Wing:  Marabou in colors of choice

Note:  The pattern pictured above is tied with a orange thread body, gold tinsel ribbing, orange over yellow marabou wing and bead chain eyes.  When I first discovered the pattern on Skip Morris's webpage this was the color combination he listed.  It is a solid producer.

This is a pattern to experiment with.  Have fun with it!
