I had to leave before Mike finished his excellent presentation last week and didn't get a good look at the Shad fly. I can't find the flys I used last year so I need to tie up several. Does anyone have a picture of Mikes Shad fly that they can post. Also hook size would be helpful.
Thanks,
Don

Don,

I hope this helps. This is the fly Mike gave me. It's on a #4 hook looks to be a 34007 hook but not as long a shaft as you would use for a Clouser. He mentioned hot colors were White, Orange, Pink, and Chartreuse or a combination of White and one of the other colors It appears to be deer hair and a couple of strands of Krystal flash with mini size eyes.

On a cold and windy day before going to "work" this afternoon,I tied up these flys for the outing. Used some #2 short shank light hooks, red and white bucktail and then palmered over some pink saddle hackle. Used some exsmall yellow eyes for more color. Need to move this post to the fly tying section.
