Do you love big bluegill?
These are 1/4 to 1/8 inch long.
I wish I could help. Maybe a generic Gold-Ribbed Hare's Ear, or a Copper John, sizes 16 or smaller? Not sure if you'll be able to tie something that small.
Also, Mr. Twister has a soft-plastic nymph pattern that closely matches what you have, in a variety of colors.
Can't really help on the tadpoles. From what I understand, most tadpoles produce a noxious toxin, and fish won't touch them. However, when they change into Frogs, if there are any LMB's in that pond, start fishing topwater frogs!
Allen did you know what the bugs are.
Unfortunately, no. Wish I did.
DICK, Knowing the BUG, is not important!!! You are a GOOD TYER, BECOME the BUG, BECOME ONE with the BUG and TIE!!!!! SO SAYETH THE GRASSHOPPER!!!!!! :-)
