Fly Tying
PWB

Bluegills on my mind today.

Recommended Posts

nice looking fly. i like the use of a silli leg for the furled tail. i have carp on my mind (vise), but i think i might be switching to gills for the rest of the afternoon.

 

what size hook did you use?

The tail is round rubber from a replacement skirt for a spinnerbait. I furled the tail and used a red sharpie on the tip of tail and legs. The rubber does have sparkly flakes in it.

Ha, PWB you won't believe it but I tied a "new" bluegill pattern over the weekend using the exact same tailing idea. I saw it on an Orvis ad last week and liked the idea for a bluegill fly. I'm sure it will kill 'em. I'll get pics of mine tonight, maybe. Good work!
