It's been some time since I've been at the vise, at least long enough to notice a few cobwebs. Thanks to a recent shipment of "fritz", courtesy of Singlebarbed, and his recent delicious looking shad patterns, I had a little motivation at the vise. I adapted my Roughfisher Swimming nymph to an all white version. My guess is that warmwater species like the crappie, sunfish, and bass will get a little excited over this pattern. Leggo my eggo; I'm hoping to nail a few roughfish with it as well.
Rabbit tail with krystal flash, antron and angelina dubbed body, 6mm fritz thorax, and peacock herl wingcase. Silicone legs optional. I suppose if I could find some red colored bead chain I could have myself a perfect set of albinos. Time for a field trial.
