Variation on the Shannon's Fly

On a visit to Lake Carlton, Rockwood-Morrison State Park in IL, I came up empty-handed when fishing... except when using the Shannon's Fly and a varient of this fly (pictured).  Bass love the Shannon's Fly but the bass and panfish were hitting the variation more heavily on this day when the temp was 92* and the water temp a mere 90 degrees.  The variation also sunk more readily than the original, which was a great benefit as the fish were not hanging in the shallows.
