Jay Zimmerman designed the Back Stabber over a year ago and its a great fly for lots of different fish. Last night while sitting at the fly tying bench I thought...can it be improved for bass fishing. This is SOP for fly tiers because they have to tweak every pattern they encounter.
Hummm....what if I added a two inch tail made out of soft suede (1/8" thin ultrasuede skin strip in black from Hairline). Whoa, this is a great idea! Maybe I could even rename the fly the improved Prentiss BS. Would Jay stand in my way for fame and fortune. Yea he would.
Anyway, the addition works pretty darn well.
