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.
