Wet Pinky |
By Bill Lowe
I picked up the phone and the guy on the other end said, “I hear that the shad are in…what flies do I need?” That’s an easy one, I thought.
“Grab a dozen wet pinkies…and for backup, I’d grab a dozen wet pinkies.”
The wet pinky, as first shown to me by the Shad King of Sacramento, Dave Howard, has been my ONLY shad fly for the past six or so years. I don’t know exactly what it is about this pattern, but shad seem to love to put it in their mouths! Tie up a dozen and give ‘em a try.
