Short and sweet; this video shows me tying a version of my trout candy that I have just started using and have had great results from it. The recipe is as follows:
Hook – Cabela’s Plated Jighead in size 1/64 (brass)
Tail – Silver Bucktail; a piece long enough to extend an inch and a half from the eye.
Body – Wapsi’s Palmer Chenille in small pearl gray
The fly is sold in larger sizes (1/32, 1/16) and could be a great go-to fly for panfish and bass alike. I am tying the fly in olive, black, silver and my favorite, crème. If you watch the video from Roaring River you can see how effective the fly actually is. In the Roaring River video (posted a few days ago) I am fishing the fly using my 3 weight rod, sink tip 1 fly line and 3X tippet. This set up works very well with the 1/64 size fly.
Best of luck with the fly; let me know if you have success with it. If you have questions you can contact me in the comment section at the bottom of this page or by emailing me at email@example.com.

Very seldom do I find a product that both makes sense and actually works like it is supposed to … The Knot Kneedle is just such a product. I was out in Missouri this past weekend and decided to fish the last hour of catch/release at Roaring River. I had already shot a video the […]
What a better way to spend a day during an epidemic than to walk a beautiful, quiet trout stream in search of a few rainbows. Missouri has four trout parks; Roaring River trout park is the farthest west, located in the southwestern corner of Missouri, near the town of Cassville. Catch and release fishing in […]
Occasionally life just hits the sweet spot; such was the case on my last afternoon at Bennet Spring State Park. After lunch and little nap I decided to grab my 3 weight and hit the spring for one last hour of daylight. You never really know how things are going to go … but you […]
