Tying the Jitterbee

At our August 4th fly tying session, Larry Offner led us in tying the Jitterbee, one of the best submergent flies for sunfish. Created by Randy Leonpacher of Baton Rouge in 1995, it was designed to be the fly version of a longtime favorite panfish lure. Catch Cormier has now filmed the tying instructions in HD video and uploaded to YouTube. It can be viewed by clicking below. At the end of the video, there's a list of materials, best color schemes, and other notes.
