This shad fly is part of The Pfeiffer Collection.
This is the fourth variation of the Connecticut River Shad fly. This fly trades in its wing for a throat, and is a fairly traditional looking wetfly. This shad fly is super simple to tie, and the fact that you can tie several using one neck hackle makes it a winner to me.
The Connecticut River Shad Fly- Variation #4 Pattern:
