skull head perch fly

Postby Emerson » Mon May 02, 2011 8:06 am

We go to Maine in about a month. Smallmouths love to eat perch, so.....perch colored flies have really work well. The skulls might just work. I have not used these yet but it looks like they have potential...gives a nice wide body and hope Mr and Mrs smallmouth think the same ;)

Em Use something similar to that up here on the Lake Erie and works well. If there are perch on the lake you are going to should work. Been getting our flies ready for the cape in a month.

Nice jig. When did you take up spinning rods? ;)

Just busting, they look good. How do they swim? Have you tried any with the hook point-up to get weedless? I assume you are tying some in black and white for later.

Yes..back and white and some olive and white

Usually for the perch, we are in a bit of deeper water and do not need the weedless. I have a weedless new addition for pics though..need some more experimenting but will post if it works.

Don't hit yourself with one of those fishskullz. They really smart. BTDT, stopped using them after the stars incident.

Ok that is quite a ways east of where I grew up. I just checked it out on google maps. There is no shortage of water to fish there LOL
