    Default Bully Bluegill Spider .....

    Is this a bluegill fly that works well for you? I know there is no limit to the color schemes a tyer can imagine. I am curios if some of you have fished this fly with great/good/moderate success. Thank you for any input.

    GREAT success: one of Bill Byrd's 2 favorites. Best color combination is black body with chartreuse legs. Let it plop and sit until the rings subside then give it tiny strips. Have fun.

    Thank you Jim. That's the kind of feedback I was hoping to hear.

    Isn't that a fly a slow sinker? I didn't know it sat in the film.

    The original is tied with significant lead near the tail so it sinks with rubber legs at the head or top of fly waving about as it sinks. It has worked well for me, but not my best fly. I will have to try black/chartreuse

    It's tied on a size 14 light wire hook; body is foam with rubber legs. No lead, no sinking.
