My most successful pattern for European Sea Bass this year. Tied from Silver Scales Preyfish fibre.
I call it ‘The Maverick Mullet’.
Well it’s tied in a different way to most conventional flies of this style, leaving the tail fibres longer to add movement, the Hook is at a very aggressive kicked out angle which I’ve found improves the hook up ratio and the head is tall and narrow and is built up with Solarez thin, this helps to give the fly a darting side to side swimming action. Nose to tip of tail it’s just three inches long, yet has a fairly deep side profile for it’s size creating the impression of a worthy meal and being very easy to cast at the same time.
