Size 6 heavy jig hook
The Ice Perch is really just a spin off ubiquitous zonker pattern. What they lack in complexity, they make up for in effectiveness. The slim profile easily matches small perch, chubs, suckers, dace, shiners, whitefish, and trout fry. Fishing a heavy fly on a jig hook allows the angler to get their fly in the zone without snagging as often, which is a huge key to tricking a big trout. They have a flowing, diving action when retrieved on a jerky strip. Fish love to hit them on a dead fall as they sink.
