    Wanted to tie a bass pattern, so I did. It has 2 beads on it, and is wrapped with lead wire. It looks killer to me, what do YOU think about it. Opinions appreciated.

    I like it, I'd tie one in brown/orange and red/black combo as well.

    I originally added 4 legs total per fly, but I accidentally cut one off of one side and just went with one leg per side. And it's a #4 hook.

    I'd bite that thing, if not just to kill it!

    Man, if I was a fish.... that thing would piss me off. :D





    Oh, and thanx for sharing. :)

    The Bass Thang's are on a #4 hook. I have a much better Crawdad pattern called the Paddlin' Crawdad, and it's the fly below. I want to make a blue Paddlin' Crawdad, just need blue Uni- Mohair.
