Hand Tied Fly | Classic Baitfish | White | Mike Smith X Manready Mercantile
Classic Baitfish (White)
What eats baitfish? Everything, that’s what. This classic fly fishes well in saltwater and freshwater alike. While this pattern was initially designed for stripers on the east coast, it catches nearly every swimming predator.
- Tied on a Gamakatsu SC15 in size 1/0
- Slow sinking action can be fished just under the surface or fished deeper with a sinking line (ideal for surf fishing)
- Target species: Striper, Speckled trout, Bass, Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, etc…
All flies are hand tied in Houston, Texas by Mike Smith at Manready Mercantile. We use only premium materials, and all patterns have been fished and refined in their ideal waters.
