Our New Fly Fishing Fly Needs a Good Name

Our friend Phil Pope has created a new fly...and we need a name!
- Materials: Polar fibre and EP shrimp dubbing (all synthetic.)
- To fish: Shallow salt water flats for redfish, sea trout, snook, and tarpon.
- Bouyancy: It sinks slowly and can be fished as a shrimp or a baitfish pattern.
- Use: for sight fishing (at a fish that you see,) or for blind casting (casting in an area that has fish, but you can not actually see them.)
- Weedless: It uses a unique hook to make it very weedless without a ‘weedguard,’ so the fly is very versatile.
- Color: It is currently available in two colors, one size. It will be available in other sizes and colors as a weedless bass fly in July.
Generally there is a rhyme and reason to naming fly fishing flies. To learn about these fly naming fundamentals read Allen Wyatt's article "The Naming of Fly Fishing Flies

The name will be chosen by Phil Pope himself on Monday, July 2.
