    Default WOVEN FUN - Panfish - Jan 13, 2014

    WOVEN FUN
    I have been playing with some woven flies, and they work well for me on bluegills in this area. I had tied on some legs, and then wove around the legs to add action to the fly. Then a very dangerous thing happened, my mind went in a few weird directions. I decided to run the rubber legs through the loops on the material being woven. I did that and the legs stayed in place but were pointed down. I tied up five variations of body colors with four colors of legs.

    Rick, it's always enjoyable reading your articles. I wonder if there is a picture of your leggy woven flies anywhere?

    Rick,

    after reading your article it reminded me of the first woven patter I tried, the tussle bug, caught several SM's and one of the largest crappies, on a fly, in one local waters I fish allot. Woven flies are a great once you learn the weaving techniques. I find the the granny knot or shuttle weaves to be the best for me.

    Thanks for the great story enjoyed it.

    Mike
