New "Perfect Fly" Shad Streamer
I designed a new fly some time ago that I have just now received in large quantities.
I call it our "Perfect Fly" Shad. I designed it for bass and trout anywhere shad are
present. Shad are present in many waters where largemouth and smallmouth bass
exist. They get through dams from lakes where they exist in some tailwater streams.
They are also present in other types of streams that trout exist in. I haven't even got
it listed in our "Perfect Fly" store yet. It should be available in less than a week, or
you want any before that, just email us at sales@perfectflystore.com. They come in
a hook size 4 and will cost $2.25 each. All shipping is free.

I am showing it to you for comments. We think it is a very good imitation of most
shad, especially little threadfin shad that are most common. Let us know what you
think of it. The cheek is made of a mallard flank and the topping is of peacock herl.
There are several other materials involved. The hook is completely hidden.
