I’ve been tying up tons of baitfish patterns for clients over the past couple months and so I didn’t want to pass this one up. This is a pattern with a cool construction that is going to keep a lot of it’s shape in the water. The peacock under body is quite chunky and with the translucent materials over top, it looks like a well fed fingerling. I would switch the epoxy out for Tuffleye or another light set resin to avoid the wheel and any potential saging. On that note, I just received a fresh tube of the new Tuffleye Flex from Wet-A-Hook tech. The flex product has a gummy feel when set, and I can’t wait to get a few of these tied up.
