Chasing fish in the surf is a passion of mine and I love to search likely areas with Streamer / Baitfish style patterns and this one is a simple tie but also very successful.

I also use this when searching deep drop off areas with a sunk line seeking our Pollock and being so easy / quick to tie there’s no real upset caused when you lose a few on the rocks.It’s also a handy very simple pike predator pattern or tied with a shorter tail it could also double up as a nice fry pattern for our reservoir fish making it a lot more versatile than simply for saltwater use.

Step One

Set hook in vice, catch in thread and tie in small amount of white bucktail.

Step Two
