The Hayden Shad Fly

This shad fly is part of The Pfeiffer Collection.

The Hayden Shad Fly is an excellent choice for the St. Johns River and while the original calls for red yarn and a yellow hackle, I tie it with a white hackle with pink yarn, white hackle with orange yarn, orange hackle with white yarn, or pink hackle with white yarn. These colors are great producers, but mix colors up and see what works best for you!
