Posted by Steve Galea at
The black-nosed dace is a pattern first made famous by legendary angler and tyer Art Flick. It has always been one of my go-to bucktail patterns too. So I tied a quartet of them this week to round out one of my spring bucktail boxes. The one pictured is a bit shaggy and perhaps not sparse enough, but I like them this way -- and the fish don't seem to mind either. Normally, I build them on Mustad 9672s or some other down-eyed streamer hook, but I have a book in which Art Flick ties them on an up-eyed salmon...
