The Story

In 1947, Art Flick's Streamside Guide listed only one bucktail, the Black-Nose Dace. The fly resembles chubs, dace, and a host of small minnows that have the dark lateral line down their side that landlocked salmon love.

Shipped to USA only.

Sizes: 6, 8, 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for Crappie and other game fish. Does well for picking game fish out of weed areas. Pickerel are pretty hard on it though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Effective Streamer Use these in the local river for smallies and in murky streams for trout. Very happy with results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Fly This is something that everyone should have in their box - it is best when fished in fast water where it can cut across the current or when you can pull it back to you along the edge of current.
