  1. I know you probably don't want to hear this but.


    If you have any fly shops in the area i would highly suggest going to them.


    It would be nice to go and see how it's done and if their good people than they might even be able to help you set it up.


    That would be your best bet, because words can only explain so much, but watching someone do it helps a lot.

  2. Kirk have you tried the Foam Cylinder bug for bluegill?


    Also, with the spider body bug, what hook are you using? Also how does it swim?




    Evan, I've used foam cylinders for bream bugs and they work fine but I prefer the square faced ones like I have pictured, they "pop" better than the tiny round cylinders.


    The spider diver minnow dips down and if you give it short strips, you can keep it under. It does not have any built in wobble like a crank bait though but it is still effective and easy to tie. The hook is a Mustad 3366 #10 or #8.

    Just tie in a tail of hair or marabou or tuft of rabbit, wrap some cactus chenille around the shank, trip the top flat and stick the body on to the hook eye (after pre-poking a hole with a needle). Put some thick super glue or your favorite adhesive on top the flat top and hold the spider body down. No need to tie it, if stays just fine.



    Thanks a bunch Kirk.
