Dan Blanton’s Whistler fly, dubbed for the sound generated by the open hole in the pinhole eyes as it sailed through the air, is typical of the more densely tied West Coast saltwater patterns. Blanton engineered the fly to emulate a bucktail jig used for striped bass in San Francisco Bay, tying the fly "in the round" (i.e. without contrasting topping) to ensure a proper profile no matter the viewing angle.
