Cool sandeel pattern



Lately i’v been working with a couple of sandeel imitations for the upcoming season and this is definitely one of the sandeel’s there is going to be at the end of my leader. I’v seen this pattern in a magazine somewhere, i guess it was in fiske-feber. I don’t know who is the original creator of this fly? Anyways, in my opinion it looks quite “fishy”. It’s very simple to tie and it also seems like that it’s not a big hassle to cast with like some of the flatwing sandeel imitations.


Material list:

  • Hook: Gamakatsu F314 #4
  • Thread: Uni-mono 200 clear
  • Tail & Body: STF Dubbing
  • Dubbing loop of 0.16 braided fireline
  • Head: UV Glue and 3D eyes

My guess would be that this fly will work very well with a Magic Head from Marc Petitjean:
