Short Stack Slider

Curtis  - September  21, 2015

I'm a sucker for bluegill and crappie flies. And although carp aren't the most popular quarry on my fly rods, I've caught enough of them to know enough to have a good fly selection for them as well.

So the Short Stack Slider is a combination and culmination of a few patterns I've fished for both crappie and carp over the past number of years. One of my favorite crappie patterns is called the "Matacrappie" and consists of a wire body, a throat, legs and barbell eyes for weight.

As it turns out, I also ended up catching good numbers of carp and catfish on the Matacrappie as well. And in terms of Crappie, it did a good job. 

However, there were two things I needed to change on the pattern. First, it needed to sink a bit slower and it also needed to land "butt up" to be a bit more enticing for carp. That's where the the Short Stack slider came about. So give it a try for all sorts of warmwater fish. It's a fun tie and gives you a good exposure to deer hair with a relatively simple stack and trim job.
