My invention relates generally to arti?cialv tapering portion 6 .of the body 5, while the eye

The body_5 being readily compressible, is easily
deformed by tightly winding the thread or the
equivalent to produce the thread formed indenta

tic wood, or balsa wood, or a body composed of
any or all of these substances, whereby the body
is not only soft and compressible but ?oats easily
on the‘ surface of the water.
_ In accordance with the present invention the
?oating body 5 has a ?at tapering upper end
portion 6 and has on its underside a longitudinal
rearwardly deepening slot ‘I which receives the
hook 8 in the manner indicated in Figure 6.
The hook 8 is a standard commercially avail
able type of hook and its shank portion and a
part of the hook portion lying along and within
the slot ‘I so that the hook portion and the barb
is located downwardly extending} under the rear
long hairs transversely of the body 5 and through
a slit 22 in the body made in the upper part
thereof and extending from the head l9a and
into the body 5.
It is obvious that the thread windings contract
the body 5 around the shank of the hook 8 and
lock the same ?rmly and immovably in place.
Coloring of the ?ies of the present invention
may be secured by applying a base coloring of
waterproof ink, and shades and blending further
secured by applying color pigments, and then dip
ping the body in a color preservative,’ such as col
lodion, and the whole secured by the application
of suitable varnish.
The “legs” and “wings" and the thread wind
ings are all secured by means of a waterproof ce
ment, which is commercially obtainable.
It is obvious that almost unlimited variety of
in color and color combinations representing prac
tically every known species of trout _food of the
?y family is available in accordance with the
present invention.
Although I have shown and described‘ herein
10 preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be
de?nitely understood that I do not desire to
limit the application‘of the invention thereto, and
any change or changes may be made in the mate
rials, and in the manner of assembling the same,
within the spirit cf the invention andthe scope of
the subjoined claim.
What is claimed is:
In an artificial iiy or fish bait and in combina
tion, a body of compressible material having a
longitudinal groove in its side increasing in depth
toward the rear end of the body, a hook having
its shank and the inner portion of its bill dis
posed in said slot, said inner portion of the bill
being disposed in the deep end portion of the slot 10
and backed by the adjacent portion of the body,
and means surrounding and compressing the
