    Those shad are to smallmouth what spot are to stripers. Good luck with the streamers.

    Interesting. Looks like an elongated woolly bugger without palmered hackle.

    There's no end to the ingenuity of some fly tiers.

    I also found Kelly Whites red & white gurgler very effective. He is a guide in the Potomac and knows his stuff.

    Step 6 where he pierces the foam and slides it over the hook is very clever. That makes for a nice undercarriage on the fly.

    I tie but I never think of stuff like that!

    Thank goodness for tying books and internet patterns...and people who share them.

    Thanks Harry. Gurglers are on my list of things to tie this winter as well!

    Here's a similar floating smallmouth fly developed by Bob Clouser.

    The fly's body is made by gluing two rubber spider forms onto the hook. The forms are available in most fly shops.

    Problems:
    1. Putting the thread through the bobbin.
    2. Thread kept breaking, causing a repeat of #1.
    3. I can't whip finish by hand.
    4. Superglue gel is sticky.
