Dubuque Fly Fishers


Bluegill Buster

Tyer: ason Meyer

Hook: Nymph hook #14

Thread: 6/0, color to match body

Weight: Smallest wire you can find*

Body: Antron dubbing (any color)


*Optional: You can also add a small brass bead on the head and/or some small hackle fibers for a tale.

If you do not use a bead head, you will want to build up a head with the dubbing. Even if you are using a bead, you still should put wire on it for more weight. This is a bottom fly, and the bluegills slam on it, especially during the spawning season.
