JeffSod Smallie Slayer

Hook: 1/0 VMC 7311BN Fast Grip Rig'N Worm
Thread: 6/0 White Flat Waxed Nylon
Belly: Medium Corsair Tubing
Body: Puglisi EP-Fibers (Polar Bear Color)
Lateral Line: Hareline Ice Wing Fiber (Minnow Back Color)
Wing: Puglisi EP-Fibers (Pinfish Color)
Rattle: 3MM Worm Rattle
Eyes: 6mm Holographic Dome Eyes

I was turned on to this pattern from member JeffSod on the Fiberglass Flyrodders site. This fly is very simple and the materials can easily be swapped out.

The VMC hook (shown on right) is a great hook and for $12.60 per 100 you can't beat the price! I've used VMC for a while now and really like the hooks. If you want to get a hold of some VMC's visit Captain Hooks Discount Warehouse http://www.captainhookswarehouse.com.

"I don't know the name of the fly actually. A charter captain from MA named Charlie Lemieux was how I learned about it. He was at a local fish show and had these out on display and I bought a couple to copy. The hook is a Gamagatzu G-lock worm hook size 1/0. The belly is bills bodi-braid tubing with a worm rattle inside for weight and attractor. The wing is a pre-blend purchased from bearsden.com called Devlin blend.

Really quite simply but very effective. Just this morning caught a couple more nice smallies and a big 3lb pickerel."

Red Worm Hook Variation

I'm really excited to get this pattern on the water. It just looks dastardly doesn't it? I really like the fact it is so simple and from what Jeff has shown - very fishy!
