Pink Punch

  The Pink Punch is a deadly fly for panfish – especially crappies – that are hanging around weedlines and other deeper structure. There’s just something in the pink that panfish can’t resist. The collar produces an almost transparent effect that imitates the profile of a baitfish. 

  If I had to pick one fly for my panfish box this would definitely be the one. I created this fantastic warmwater fly in August of 2012 and have fished it in small streams,  lakes, and quarries.  Fishing for greenies, sunnies, ‘gills, crappie, and perch, I’ve never found a spot where it would not produce. Here’s the recipe:

Thread: Pink or Black 8/o

Hook: # 12

Bead: Silver Conehead

Tail: Pink Marabou or pseudo marabou

Body: Pink Ice Dub in a dubbing loop

This is overall a great fly and my absolute favorite to fish.
