    Put me down for Richard Komar's Black Widow. This is the best-producing panfish fly I know how to tie. If there are bluegills around, they will bite this.

    I'm in with a bead zebra midge if I can work out the details. Zebra doesn't look so good so I'm going with a Black Line Fly. Also found a book on tying with beads. Should arrive Monday or Tuesday. May change my mind then.

    Drive it like you stole it! Half the fun of getting there is not knowing your going to make it?

    I need to change my pattern (I don't have the right black feathers). I wound up doing a larger version of a Mercury Midge, using Spanflex for the body. I tried it out at the stream by the house and caught 4 bluegills, and 3 Rainbow trout (they didn't seem to mind that it is huge, for a midge...) in less than 45 minutes.

    Since it uses a different body material, I guess I'll call it the Giant Mercury Bluegill Bug.



    Hook: sz. 14 scud
    Thread: 6/0 black Unithread
    Head: 6/0 clear glass bead from Walmart
    Body: white Waspi Spanflex
    Ribbing: medium copper Uniwire
    Collar: black dubbing

    They'll go out in tomorrows mail.

    If I can find the right beads, I'll be tying a green scud.
