Here is my interpretation of Bill Sherer's Figure 8 streamer. Bill says this pattern has accounted for more fly caught muskies than any other fly. I tied this one up in a perch/sunfish coloration and this particular fly caught the fish I'm holding in the previous picture. The fly is not complicated to tie, but there are a number of steps involved. It has a large profile in the water, but the materials compress significantly when out of the water, making the fly easy to cast. This fly is usually tied to be 5"-10" in length. It will also catch pike, oversized smallmouth and a host of other predators.
