Do you love big bluegill?
Thanks Jesse for your reply. I think your right but have no idea of what dragonfly it is but my pond has 1000's of them little critters in it.
DICK, YOU ARE MASTER TYER!!!!!! YOU SAW IT AND CREATED IT!!!!!! 2 THUMBS UP!!!!!!!!
Now SHARE THE PATTERN!!!! Size hook eyes, body and head material and those CUTE LITTLE LEGS!!!!!!
This was the 1st one Greg. I'll try and make a few more and have pictures with step x steps. No guarantee but will try. Thank you for your word of encouragement it is highly appreciated.
Man what a great looking bug Dick !!!!!!!!!! Super looking to me and Congrats buddy.........
I'm going to tie a few more and perfect it I hope. I usually not happy with my ties but for my 1st one it turned out pretty good far from perfect but I think it will catch fish. I'll be trying it out soon.
Dick, I usually tend to stay away from conversations regarding tying bugs/flies/jigs, as I have no knowledge of this type of thing, but if that doesn't catch fish I will be totally shocked.
Thanks Tony that means a lot I guess the proof will be when I invade my pond with it. Only caught 3 gills out of my pond all year. They come up to look at the baits that's strictly artificial now but very few takers. Hoping this part of there diet and works for me. I'll be posting results when I get them. Again thanks Tony.
I can guarantee you that your 'gills are eating those nymphs. Hopefully they will inhale your creation as well.
I have good luck with a size 8 Bead Chain Wooly Bugger in olive. Mine usually have a long marabou tail, but would probably get better results if I would trim the tail close to the body, if not go without a tail completely.
The only thing Allen in looking at pictures of dragon fly and damson fly nymphs I've seen them both ways this just happens to be whats in my pond. Don't mean other type don't exist just that the picture in question is the one I have seen and know is present in my body of water. If this thing works I will try some different patterns. Again thanks for your input it's all important to me.
A Damselfly nymph actually does have a longer tail, about the same length as the body, with three little "paddles" attached at the end of the tail. This is why the "Flicted Damsel" nymph that I tie has a tail that's done as an extended body, and just wrap the marabou shaft with some thread to make it seem like a solid tail.
Allen do you think I can see your tie of your damsel fly.
