Crafty Point Up Baitfish

Introduction: Crafty Point Up Baitfish

About: I am an avid fly fisherman, and started a fly fishing channel where I tie flies and video myself fishing.

This fly uses a heavy dumbbell to keep the fly swimming hook point up. The way this fly is tied, the dumbbell is hidden with the craft fur and 3D eyes. This fly, being tied with craft fur, moves wonderfully in the water. The movement is much like a dying baitfish due to occasionally turning sideways slightly when being jerked.

Fiber: Craft fur (white and chartreuse)
Hook Wrap: Pearl cactus chenille
Thread: Danville Fly Master - 70 Denier
Weight: Dumbbell Eyes - 5mm
Eyes: 3D eyes - 5mm
Adhesive: Fletch Tight
Head Cement: Solarez "Bone Dry" UV Resin
