Interesting; I guess like those pork jigs for bass fishing...? My fly is just a simple streamer with a regular rubber band tail (1 1/2") long from the hook bend. I use a complete lead wrap of the shank to weight it. Also, I secure everything with a wire rib at the end. You can see that the wire is all torn up in my picture. I plan on tying some flies tonight or tomorrow and I will try and add a better picture if you guys are interested. It is nothing technical; just a fun-simple streamer that works for me!
