One thing ive noticed about favorite or popular B.Gill baits is the B.Gill's fascination for rubber legs… one of my most favorite ties growing up as a kid was the foam spider with those rubber legs.…Continue

Here's how I make my tungsten jigs.  Like Dave, I use the slotted tungsten beads.  To fasten the beads, I mount the hook/bead in the vice and fill the slot with lead fillings.  Then, add a drop or two of crazy glue to the fillings.  The glue is wicked into the fillings and creates a very strong bond.  Be ready, because sometimes the glue will come out around the hook eye.  Soak up the excess with a paper towel and run a piece of mono through the hook eye while the glue is still wet.  I haven't had a bead come loose yet.  It's like they are welded to the hook, and the lead adds a bit more weight.

Sorry I don't know how to edit my comment. Top pic, left side #3&4 are daphnia with bead inside for weight. Pic #2, tiny green bead is 1.5mm on a #18 hook. Plain bead and hook are used for ice plastics.

Slip, I use slotted tungsten beads on dry fly hooks. Both for ice fishing and open water. Hooks are 94833 2 x fine. Size 18 to 10. Beads range from 1.5mm to 4.0mm. Gold, copper, silver. I use size 70 thread, I tie with thread that reacts with UV light. Fluo red, pink, orange. I have tried some daphnia with tungsten inside for weight.

anybody willing to share and post some ice fly creations... in particular I'm looking for tungsten bead up front with hook riding up.

remember this is a great way to popularize your ties or creations. users can link to the fly discussion in particular and use them in their posts!

I have a point and shoot Olympus Stylus 1050SW. I lost the disk that had the companion photo storage, editing, etc., with it and then I had to buy a new computer. I downloaded Viewer 3, which is their new software, but now I have to figure it out.

Bruce,
I just started using Google Photo, as it is what came on the phone.
I messed up the link address.
Still haven't figured out how to get the Google hosted pic into a post here as an image. What I used to do didn't work...
Comment by Allen Morgan on June 30, 2016 at 5:22am

Bruce, are you using a SD card in your camera?  Does your computer have an SD card reader?

Or, does your camera have a USB port on it somewhere?  Most do.  Just plug the camera into the computer with a USB cord, then turn the camera on.  The computer will see the camera as another drive.

Those are neat flies, David. I don't know why I couldn't open the other link. I'm getting close to being able to post photos.  I installed a photo program tonight, but I haven't learned how to get the photos from my camera and onto the computer. I'll figure it out.

Comment by David, aka, "McScruff" on June 29, 2016 at 3:48pm

I tied these kinda short; I didn't want a big long ass-end hanging out.
Before I ever tried rubber hackle legs, this is the sort of fly I tried.
The bluegill would go for it readily in the pond.
Then I kinda forgot about it, experimented with a zillion other flies, and never really tried it anywhere else. I really dont know how it will work on a large BOW.

But I am certain it needs to be fished on a calm surface. Once the breeze gets up, Id switch to something noisier if I was intent on using topwater flies.
