Fly Of The Month: Garners Twisted Whistler


This fly was designed for river stripers but will catch trophy-sized spotted and largemouth bass as well, and probably any species fresh or salt that likes to eat wounded baitfish. Tying it on a jigged hook gives the fly a terrific wounded-baitfish motion that triggers strikes as well as preventing snags.

Thread: UTC White 140
Weight: .025 Lead wire wrapped on hook shank
Tail: Tip-dyed white/chartreuse bucktail, white Icelandic sheep hair
