The fly can be tied to match any small prey fish. From herring to mullet, anchovy to shad the possibilities are endless. Stay tune for the newest hatch matchers!
Pacific Pink: When salmon season swings around, finding fresh fish on the the move is often the key to success. The Bead Belly Baitfish in Pacific pink, tied up on a #1 hook, hits all the bases. Cast it into tide-rips for open ocean fish. Strip over the beaches. Swing it in the tidewaters and up stream runs. Jerk it through the backwaters and coho sloughs. Where ever you find salmon, you'll find a use for this fly.
Baby Bluegill: Whether you know them as brim, bream, or bluegill, bronzenose, perch,or sunny, shellcracker, pumpkinseed, punkie or maybe even kivver, if you fish in bass country you're no doubt familiar with the Centrarchidae family. Pretty much all warmwater predators are familiar with them too. A good sunfish imitation is a must have for any serious bass angler's fly box. The Bead Belly Baitfish in "Baby Bluegill" fits the bill. Give it a toss. You might just hook the bucket mouth of a lifetime. Hook size 1, approximately 2 3/4" overall length.
Baby Bass: Good spring rains equal successful spawning in bass country. You can bet when the late season rolls around, six -month-old fingerlings will be on the menu. The Bead Belly Baitfish in Baby Bass colors gets the job done when comes to hooking those big, cannibal bucketmouths. Size 1 Gamakatsu G-Lock. Approximately 2 3/4" overall length.
Shad: No doubt, the number one freshwater baitfish known to North American fisherfolks is the Shad. Gizzard or Hickory, Threadfin or American-- no matter the specific species, Shad are often the plat principal for predators. The wise angler always has a few imitations in their box. In chartreuse over white, the Bead Belly Baitfish in Shad is a great general imitator. Size 1 Gamakatsu G-Lock. Approximately 2 3/4" overall length.
Micro Bead Belly Baitfish in Chartreuse: The late, great Lefty Kreh once famously said in relation to streamer fly color, "If it ain't chartreuse, it ain't no use!" While we may not take Ole Lefty's adage as carved-in-stone fly fishing law, his point is still valid-- every serious fisher of baitfish patterns should have a selection of solid chartreuse flies in their box. Hence, this newest version of the Bead Belly Baitfish. At 2" in length on a trout-safe, #4 Gamakatsu G-Lock hook, this is the perfect choice anytime predators are keying on small forage fish. Whether you're targeting coastal cutthroat or southern Crappie, you can put this chartreuse fly to use!
