Warmwater Fishing Heating Up

Last night at the tying bench I tied up a few of these SP flies to try.  After a dozen bass and 1/2 dozen crappies this morning they seemed to be working.  As a mater of fact, I don't have any left .....lost them them in timber along the shoreline.

The Recipe:

Hook: Gamakatsu Jig 90 hook size 2
Thread: Lagartun 100-D white
Eyes: Dumbell lead eyes painted red
Body: Crystal pearl chenille with Ice Wing Flash (chartreuse) placed in a dubbing loop (split thread) and wrapped forward to behind the eye - trim the top flat.
Tail: Pearl Baitfish Emulator Flash from Hareline - tie in in front of the eye and pull back over the eyes and secure with thread down the length of the hook shank.
Legs: (optional): Pearl Flake Crazy Legs from Hareline (2 on each side) tied in behind the eye and covered with the body material.
