Featured Fly - SB Baitfish

Well, I think its safe to say, the last featured fly will be the last trout fly for a while. Its bass time, bait fish and sculpin are running through my head. This new one, is a bait fish that I brewed up, taking the back half from my favorite bass fly the zuddler minnow. The front half was just put together to move a little water and drop quick in faster water. It will make its way to the river this weekend, hopefully, ill have a picture of it hanging out of a basses mouth to add to the post.
