Absolutely. I have been hunting for glow in the dark stuff since the day I discovered just how well it does work. I just got some Flashabou that glows pink, green and by green not the same green the white glows. I already had Orange that glows orange. I need to get my mits on some blue and have it glow blue. That would be awsome. I have on order, 3-D eyes that glow, thread that glows, and rainbow thin skin that glows.

I also paint the lead hourglass eyes with glow ProTek powder paint.

The fly in the top right is made with glow in the dark spider web from the Halloween section of K-Mart. It works just like EP fiber. Awsome stuff. I'm going to experiment with KoolAid dying some and see if it still glows but through the new color, making it look seperate in the water.

Nice, I will look in to some glow materials.
BTW, the red head on that clownser was done with red nail polish (don't tell the lady )

Nice looking flies in this thread. I fish the Ohio River frequently. Although I target either white bass or hybrid bass, I've caught my share of sauger on a fly. I use one pattern primarily...a chain eyed clouser. I tie it in white marabou with emerald flash, white/gray marabou with silver flash, and beadhead streamers w/ olive marabou with a little emerald flash as well. The emerald I use when emerald shiners run as bait. The silver, when shad run as bait. The olive I use when the lighter colors fail me. These 3 colors mentioned work well on sauger in the area of the country I live in. Sauger tend to come shallow the last hour or so of daylight in my parts, so the chain beads eyes server me well.

Sorry to hear about losing your grandfather. Sounds like he left a good fishing legacy to you.

Diver Dan, do those glow in the dark flies really seem to up your catch ratio at night? I think I might like to tie some like that.
Me too! I am definitely taking notes. What great responses to my initial question.

I finally uploaded a couple of Sauger photos. Most of the ones I get are small up here. As I said, we have a small strain, but even for here they are small. Almost all of the really big ones I have ever caught were out in the lake. Fly fishing the river they tend to look like this;

I did get this one that was really nice for fly fishing in the river. I got it on a bright Orange and Yellow Clouser.

It was the only Sauger I ever caught in this spot. Everything else has been large Walleye. I have never caught one under 22" there.
