The American Shad (white shad) and its smaller brother the Hickory Shad, sometime known as “the poor man’s tarpon,” are one of the great fish species to chase with the “long wand.” During the spring migration they are readily available, making them a rather easy target and a great fish to start ones fly fishing career. The following two shad patterns have been my “go to” flies for over fifty years chasing these great fish on the fly rod.
