Flatheads…They’re pretty mean fish.
They break hooks and make a trip expensive before you know it.
Jigs and flies don’t come cheap these days.
After mulling around on what fly to use, I settled for something a bit traditional, only I bastardized it.
This fly is nothing but a Mickey Finn, only with an epoxied body, ribbed with pearl material instead of gold tinsel, the head is built up thread. Bucktail for the wing and tied on a 90º jig hook.
Will post results of the trip later.
