Do you love big bluegill?
In my local area, these work good on the bluegill.
They are just #10 sized variants on the "Crazy Charlie" theme. With such sparse dressing, the bead chain eyes flip these things right on their belly... And the hook rides up like a jig.
I drag them along the bottom, kicking up a trail of dust. Or, Inlet them "swim" on the big wing.
Super simple to tie, give em a try.
Dry or wet fly hook
Bead chain eyes
Squirrel, fox, raccoon hair
Dubbing of choice.
Orange is a good color, as is black, olive or white.
I've added a Krinkle Holo tail to one of these, and Krystal Flash, marabou, hair all have been used as tails.
One has NO tail and NO dubbed body... and hat works, also.
As usual, cast these around rock, wood or weeds and watch that line.
