The Baitfish Head is a weighted head with a realistic baitfish profile and unique design features that make it a versatile platform for tying a wide variety of streamer patterns. Quick and easy to tie, this groundbreaking innovation in fly tying offers an exciting alternative to using dumbbells or cones to weight your streamers. A set of matching Fish-Skull Living Eyes is included with the heads in your pack. SIZES: (SMALL fit hook sizes: 8 thru 4, 10-Skulls per pack), (SMALL/MEDIUM fit hook sizes: 4-1, 8-Skulls per pack), (MEDIUM fit hook sizes: 2-1/0, 8-Skulls per pack) Note: Baitfish Heads have been sized using standard-length streamer hooks as a reference point. However, due to the wide variance in hook sizes and shapes found between the different hook manufacturers, this only provides general guidance to the hook sizes suitable for each size head. We suggest you experiment to find the optimum hook for the particular streamer pattern you wish to tie.

Realistic profile
Designed to mimic the head, eyes, and gill plates of a baitfish, and to push more water than traditional streamers.

Front-fitting design
Quick and easy to use. Simply tie in all materials first, then fit the Baitfish Head from the front.

Fish-Skull® Living Eyes™
Included in a corresponding size and color, these ultra-realistic eyes act as an important trigger for predatory game fish.

Weighted keel
Distributes most of the head’s weight to the bottom of the streamer (like a dumbbell) ensuring it will swim in the correct position. This also allows you to tie with the hook facing either down or up.

Top and bottom slots
Allow vertical freedom of movement for the tying materials so you can tie broader profile streamers and get more natural action from the materials.

Colors
Available in six colors carefully selected to match almost any color of natural or synthetic fly tying material, and are anodized to provide color, flash and durability.
