That looks like it would crush smallies as a tadpole pattern there Joni, here's some of the beetles that live in my boxes I do some with and without the CDC 'wing' it just makes it easy to see in certain light.

Joni and bigtel like this.

Joni,It's really good stuff I'll have to order some,the Tails on our Beetles are only short.
Beetles/History
It was The time over here when The Beetles literally swarmed around The Gum Trees in their thousands & the Trout was really feasting on them & we all we all were using Beetle Patterns,so I suggested to Mark we have a Beetle Swap as I hadn't seen any of your Patterns.
It eventuated as The #1 Terrestial Swap & turned out so popular Mark ran a # 2 Terrestial Swap.
The Beetles range in size from a #12 Size Hook Right up to The Huge Christmas Beetles Tied on # 6 & #4 Hooks.
I have seen Gum Trees In LA however I don't know if they are elseware in The US or whether The Beetles Followed them over,as it's a long way to Fly,13 1/2 in a JUmbo.
