Simple baitfish pattern

Over on instagram, PXATIM asked me for a step by step of this easy baitfish pattern. There’s not much to it, and it’s nothing new. So here goes.

C47SD 2/0 hook
Thread of choice
White maribou
Yellow maribou
Green olive maribou
June bug Flashabou
Peacock herl
Ice dub UV tan
Ice dub UV white
Clear Cure Eyes 6mm

That’s it. I missed the green maribou step. It’s the same as the first two. Just a bit shortened up. Straighten the dub in your hands, get rid of the shortest parts. Tie in the UV dub like in the middle of your dub and work it around the shank, wrap to secure, then stroke back to get the hollow style. Tie up to it, rinse and repeat for the tan. Use whatever colors you like and repeat the dub to make the thinner baitfish into a fatter profile. Add the eyes and let the Clear Cure do it’s magic.
