On this Monday night of Chi-Tie, Tim of Critical Angling, was demonstrating how to tie a “Scooby Snack” with Orvis Chicago provided us with materials needed to tie this pattern. Tim, was extremely helpful, and provided excellent step-by-step instruction of this pattern. I look forward to fishing this pattern for bass, and possibly carp when winter leaves.
Material list…(If I can remember correctly. I know I am forgetting something….)
1. Hook (I forgot…haha)
2. Dumbbell Eyes
3. Crystal Flash
4. Zonker Strip
5. Barred Marabou
6. Rubber Legs
7. Elk Hair
|Fur, feathers, hooks, and beer!|
|Finished product. Everyone trimmed their Elk Hair differently. This was mine.|
Here’s a fly I tied after the demonstration for, Dave at Urban Assault Fly Fishing.
|A very dapper bass killer.|
It was a fun night full of laughs and great conversation. Looking forward to the next one!

JustinThe Snack is one awesome looking fly with fish attracting abilities. I am thinking big browns and spots. Thanks for sharing
Justin, I am thinking both of the flies you have shared here would be great to throw at Bass and big Trout. I am sure there are other fish that would jump at the chance to eat one of these guys also. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Bill! I think both will be big producers this year.
I've got my fingers crossed for more than big bass an trout. Maybe a pike :)Thanks for reading, Mel!
