Yellow Bead Head Cat's Whisker

Gold Head Cat's Whisker Yellow

This is one of those all round lures, fish it on a floating, intermediate or sinking line at various rates of retrieve and it will still catch. The cats whisker works superbly even when fished very slowly or even on the drop.

Tying Instructions

Place a 2mm Goldhead Bead at the eye of the hook shank, secure the bead with a piece of copper wire bent into a loop and tied down the hookshank with thread.

Take the tying thread down the hook shank, catching in some silver wire as you go.

Take a bunch of white marabou, secure this to the hook shank. (Optional 4 strands of Krystal Flash).

Catch in some silver wire and fluo yellow chenille.

Wind the fluo yellow chenille up towards the Goldhead bead.

Catch in a White Cock Hackle and wind down the hook shank – palmered style.

Wind the silver wire up the hook shank towards the chain bead to secure the palmered hackle in place.

Whip finish and varnish the thread wraps just behind the gold bead.
