Cap Spiders for Red Devils
If there is a fly that is better than the Rubber Spider for catching bluegill or red devils..... it's a sinking rubber spider. Since red devil don't take a surface lure, I figured I would try the Cap Spider.

Clay and I were testing my new creations today and the results were great.

The Cap Spider I was using was tied on a 1/64 oz. jig head. I tried different color bodies and legs... most everything worked.

The RD were deep because of the rise in water level so the heavy flys worked well. I've since tied some with a bead head, or no weight at all for a really slow sink rate. Works just fine.

Look at the hump on this 1 pound male.... one of the largest I've ever seen.

That's not all they catch. How about this 2 pound catfish?

And there is that little fly, right in the corner of it's mouth.

Re: Cap Spiders for Red Devils
That fish was gorgeous. Man I bet you had a blast with them. I agree with you on Cap's Spiders. However I have only used rubber legs, not sili legs, can't find them around here.
