The Beastmaster General is a classic big slider fly. A fantastic searching pattern for striped bass fishing day or night - we absolutely love this style of fly for fishing beaches in rocky areas, as well as over deeper structure breaks that are likely to hold good-size striped bass. Can serve as a good mullet fly for big redfish too! Generally referred to as a "snake" fly, this fly is tied with saddle hackle, ostrich herl, and marabou - these feathers create an irresistible pulsating action in the water that fish just can't resist. Spun deer-hair head keeps the fly fishing near the surface and "pushes water" to help fish locate the fly. Our version of this pattern is inspired by the late Jack Gartside - the originator of this excellent design - see below for a link to Jack's site.
