I've been messing around with micro-jig flies and decided to tie an imitation baby Bluegill. This is tied on a size 4 Sabre jig hook with a non-lead BB sized split shot crimped and glued to the jig hook. The tail is a bit of fur with a couple of strands of copper colored crystal flash. The body is a dubbing brush made from synthetic fibers and the collar is a red and black hackle feather. I like to file off a bit of the split shot to give it a flat bottom which allows the fly to rest in the nose down position when at rest. This fly casts easily with my five wt and should be a great producer this spring. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all.
