    Now that cooler weather has arrived, I've been fishing a bit deeper for the Bluegill. I tied up a number of this pattern that works well for me. I tie it on 1/124oz jig heads with a bit of rabbit fur for the tail and metallic Embroidery yarn for the body. I add eyes for "realism" and give the body and heat a good coat of UV epoxy. The jig hook causes the fly to ride hook point up, which is helpful when I fish in brush or over weed beds. It is nearly indestructible and have a nice slow sink rate and very erratic jigging action.
