Chell's panfish attractor

Straight shank (I use a) #8 long shank
Any ... whatever color you want the "nose" to be.
Bead chain ... plastic fro colored eyes, silver or gold pull chain for flashier fly
Dubbing loop, your favorite color and type. I've used very long strand for a buggier look, short strand for minnows
hair or other material, contrasting color to body for added attraction.
I love raccoon fur. It stays bushier than other furs I've tried, but is soft enough to compress and clear the hook for hook setting.

 Easy fly to tie that seems to attract hits from any fish in the vicinity.  I've caught a lot of panfish, bass and a few catfish with this pattern.  The colors and exact materials can be changed for whatever waters you're fishing.

Changed the picture

I've been catching even more fish with this fly. I updated the picture of it to the actual fly I am using, not the earlier version with no tail.
