This is a version of Skip Morris' Predator. Jr. discovered some interesting "zip" tie in the electronic section of the hardware store and found that he could use them to make some very effective eyes for this fly.They have the profile and size of normal lead dumbbell eyes but not the weight. Unlike other plastic eyes these are sturdy enough to withstand being lashed onto the hook.
This version of the Predator is a quick and simply tie that anyone can do. With warmer weather coming and panfish getting more and more active now is the time to tie some up and get ready to catch some bluegill!
