Silver Yank Shad Fly

This shad fly is part of The Pfeiffer Collection.

You probably are not going to find an easier fly pattern for shad than the Silver Yank. Fish it with 3/8 inch glass beads on your leader in red, then yellow, then red again. A classic fly pattern for shad and a classic presentation to match. Alternatively I tie it with a gold body and orange wing.

Silver Yank Shad Fly Pattern:

Hook: Size 6
Thread: Black 6/0 Uni-Thread
Body: Silver Tinsel
Wing: Red Hackle Barbs
