Default Re: NAFF 2009 Bluegill swap

Here is the recipe for mine:

Mini Herl Bugger

Hook: Sz 10 Tiemco
Thread: 8/0 Black
.025 lead-free wire tied length-wise across top of shank
Tail: Black Rabbit Fur
Body: 3 - 5 strands of peacock herl (with black thread wrapped in a quasi-dubbing loop)

As basic as this fly looks, the bluegill and smallies love it - and a big plus is that it is so easy and quick to tie. I also tie it for trout in smaller sizes.
