    Buggy! I hope that you got into one of the ongoing terestrial swaps with that pattern!

    Nice and buggy. I like the legs.

    If the trout aren't extremely picky.. you might put on a small orange or yellow indicator foam piece on top of the black. I'd tie it in at the 'neck'

    Here's another way:

    Terry: Very nice looking beetle! That should be a good attractor. Would you mind listing out the materials, I'd like to make a few.

    Hi Terry & Larry,they are a great Fly & is becoming common in everyones Boxes,Terry your Pattern looks great & is similiar to the ones I've tied for the #1 Terrestial Swap,where I have My Recipe,I've also explained how I fish it,I've tied them in many colours/sizes & they all catch Fish.
    If you give your Recipe I will try it,being not much different to mine,I mainly tie mine on #8 or #10 Grub Hooks as that's the Size of The Beetle which congreate around The Gum Trees over here.

    Bushy little bugger! Is that just a long peacock herl or a lot of short hackle? Looks nice, I wonder how it floats though. You may have to trim it flat across the bottom...guess you find out!

    I'm waiting for Terry's Recipe just to see how he Ties it.
    I firstly Palmered The Hackle,now I only Tie Hackle for The Legs at The front of the Fly to save clipping,after using Peacock Herl,Chenille,Mohair,which is good I now mainly use Medium Cactus Chenille.

    That's what's so good about NAFFF we all can Trade Patterns,info etc etc.

    Looks great! I'm waiting to hear what's on the bottom like everyone else!!!
    I'm in love with beetle fishing; the fish in the smaller streams I fish in PA just kill them from july to early sepember. My favorite recipe is black foam, with black saddle palmered along the length of the entire hook. Yours is considerably more buggy.
