Smallmouth Bass Predator X by The Fly Fiend

The Fly Fiend is back with a great streamer fly. While he is best known for some of the killer nymph patterns he whips up at the vise, he is equally adept at tying larger baitfish streamer patterns. This minnow was designed to go after bass, but any toothy critter is bound to give chase. I haven’t given the Fish Mask product a try yet, but I do like the way it finishes this fly pattern. It gives the fly a nice clean head without needing the UV resin, curing light and positions the eyes evenly, something that can be a little bit challenging.
