  1. i am seeking some shad flies as i am going to thesnake or columbia next week. anyone have some ideas what to fish with? thanks, mike w
  2. These work for me.

    The most consistent is the red and white guy. I've caught the majority of shad I've landed with that one.




  3. put some barbell eyes on a plain gold hook. it'll work as well as anything. maybe a little crystal flash for good measure.
  4. Last time I was there a few years ago we used Cabela's 1/16th and 1/8th oz jig heads with short curly tail grub bodies. Our main issue was getting enough depth down to the shad. We fished the same area Evan did.
  5. thanks guys, now i have an idea of what to construct. mike w
