When Pigs Fly
Below is a photo of my latest "Hawg Killer" fly. As you
can see, even the names are quite different here in the deep
south. Anyway, operating on the assumption that large bass
prefer pork, (our fathers and grandfathers would never go far
afield without a jar of brine preserved pork rind to dress their
bass lures), I took this fly a step further, and offered the
bass their choice of pork cuts or the option of going whole hog.

While the field testing continues, early results are quite
promising and I'm sure this fly will soon grace the flyboxes
of those lunker seekers in the know. As an added side
benefit, if one of your fishing compadres happens to favor the
exclamation, "When Pigs Fly," it is quite possible that by
merely stating, "I have seen a 'pig fly' and can prove it
beyond a shadow of a doubt," you may be able to entice
said individual into a wager for the evenings liquid libations.
Testing to date has been limited to the warmwater fishes
prevelent here in South Carolina. If you would be interested
in testing the fly on salmonoids I would be happy to send you
a couple for testing purposes. ~ Jim Hatch
