Threadfin Shad Pattern


SKU: TSP-1-PD Category: Tags: , ,


My threadfin shad pattern has a green tint to it. Along the Black Warrior River most anything green catches fish. Once while trying to paddle my pirogue around to head down river, I noticed a dead fish drifting next to my boat. It was a shad. Threadfins are primary food source for largemouth and spotted bass. If there is one bait fish pattern to use, try a some kind of shad pattern.

It’s tied with synthetic Congo Hair, H20 Twist with a wool body. The more modern features include beads, doll eyes and a Poly Dodger Disc. This gives the pattern a rattle and unpredictable movement in the water, making it come alive

The tandem hook makes it easier to catch short striking fish. Most fish I catch with these are on the stinger hook, and I have never lost a fish because of the stinger. Why? CA glue and 50 lbs monofilament line to connect it.

Good times, tight lines!
