Spotted Sunfish

Spotted Sunfish

Chell's Permanent Eye Fly

Chell's Permanent Eye Fly

Reading about eyes falling off, I wanted to create something that could not lose an eye. Reading about crease flies gave me an idea. It's still a project, so your final steps might differ from mine.

Florida Copper Nosed bluegill

Florida Copper Nosed bluegill

 The panfish attractor continues to be my favorite fly.  I took home five this size and caught and released over two dozen slightly smaller.   You can see the eyes of the fly just below my thumb.

Chell's panfish attractor

Chell's panfish attractor

 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.
