In my previous post I mentioned a fly pattern called an electric chicken, a few of you asked to see what it looks like so I thought I would share with you not only that pattern but also a few of the other patterns I have been tying this week. Hope you enjoy: 


Electric Chicken: Can either be tied using pink and chartreuse marabou on a jig or clouser style using pink and chartreuse buck tail. 


Hog Snare 


 Panty Dropper

Haha, I think I like that name even better. Either way man it is a trout slayer. Thanks for the comment.

they have a lot of plastics in the electric chicken color scheme pink and chartreuse

that combo must be a universal fish slayer, nice flies

We actually use them for shad and striped bass. They are the only thing that works sometimes.

Crazy, thanks guys I appreciate the feedback and will have to try with other species.

Electric Chicken looks like it could produce in warm water areas as well. Nice work at the bench--thanks for sharing

Bill glad I could share it with you let us know if you try it out.

I am liking the looks of the fly, too. Have not tied or fished one, but, I could see the color combinations being fruitful on Colorado Panfish and Bass. Will have to let you know later on. Thanks for sharing.
