    aroostookbasser,

    I have tied the Palmer Mud Bug with a few color variations. I'm pretty sure those colors you suggested would be hot anywhere. I am field testing the mud bug and a few other creations this weekend up in Presque Isle Wisconsin. If they work well I could tie a few up for you to try out in Maine.

    On a separate topic. My father who basically fishes of the dock, bangs Smallies all day long with a rubber lizard carolina rigged. I couldnt find any great lizard flies so I decided to make my own. I was curious if the Smallies in Maine chase lizards and if you have any suggestions on this topic. Thanks!
