Watermelon streamer?

Discussion in 'Fish on the Fly' started by gulfvet, Aug 18, 2005.

  1. Okay, here's a puzzler for you guys who tie your own. I was at a local park popnd yesterday and saw a guy slaying the bass at midday with a watermelon jerkbait. My question is, what materials could I use to approximate a watermelon pattern in a big streamer for the same place?

    Crystal Flash for one along with colored bucktail for another. There are a lot more you could use. Kiptail would be good.
     

  3. Heres a thought, try dyeing some white bucktail with Kool aid, perhaps watermellon flavor, or peach or strawberry to get the right color. I never done it but know the Kool Aid dyes hold up really well. I might add that if you had some stick on eyes it would probably help as well
