Fly of the Month by Dave Skok - Albie Whore


Designed by Richard Reagan in NY, this is a deadly autumn pattern anywhere in New England and a good one anywhere gamefish feed on small, translucent minnows. Tied on a Mustad C68 1/0, 2/0, or 3/0 in a few colors.
This fly is a favorite at Montauk for albies and stripers sipping bay anchovies but it's good for most species and can imitate a variety of different baitfish. Non-fouling and durable, it's a must-have if you chase pelagics with a fly rod.

    3rd is the flash line (everything pictured has the Pearl Scale)
