The CK Baitfish, designed by Chuck Kraft, is deceptively simple (not so easy to tie). It provides a consistent profile from any angle (doesn't "puff up" like some feather flies), has an erratic darting action, and is "easy to eat" because of its flexible, compressible material. It has been very effective on stripers, bluefish, albacore, snook, and redfish, as well as trout and bass. Attach tippet to fly with a no-slip mono loop knot for best action. Tied on Gamakatsu #1 hooks.
