This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is John Kent’s Pumpkin Head.

The Pumpkin Head was created by John Kent originally for fishing in Tunkwa Lake in BC, a highly productive but frequently low visibility lake. Kent originally developed the fly as a damsel imitation, but I’ve used it as an attractor pattern when no hatch is apparent.

One of my fishing companions fished this fly over 10 years ago and that’s how I came to know about it.

I’ve used a glass bead instead of a solid one I’ve seen in the original fly.

Enjoy…go fish, stay safe!
