Default Flying Fish imitation

I've tied several flyer patterns but this is my best job so far. I can't wait to show one to Mr Tuna!

That looks nice..! Does it have any weight to it? Was it an old cedar plug?

No weight at all. Sorry OM, I don't think you saw that it is in the fly fishing section. Its meant for one of my stupid, long, flimsy 'ole fly poles. Actually, I can put some serious heat on a big tuna with my 14WT and 15WT setups.

Even though its meant for fly fishing, a bubble float and a spinning rod and it would get out there!

It always lands upright and dives a few inches when stripped with its wings folded against its sides. On the pause, it floats to the top and the wings and spring forward and flare open. Very easy to cast, even on my lighter rods.

I will most likely be throwing it at fish around rigs. A lot of it will be blind casting but could throw a hookless popper for the bait and switch. Haven't tried it yet though
