This fly is built on the surf candy style fly that was originated by Bob Popovics. Using a few other materials and adding a tail from a chicken hackle feather I feel really adds to this fly. The flashy "starburst dubbing" made by fly tiers dungeon is awesome stuff for flashy flies. This fly will catch the attention of many fish, but its clear body will really help keep it looking subtle and realistic when a fish goes to take a bite. It moves just like a small fry, and can mimic many small baitfish like glass minnows, smelt, and even sand eels when tied a bit longer.
