The Underbody is built up with tying thread. The holographic tinsel is "Pearl".

Wish I could come and enjoy the weekend. Just had surgery on my right shoulder. The Dr want me to rest for a few weeks. Everybody have lots of fun. Post lots of pictures.

The Bluegill and other Panfish in the lakes and ponds my area of South Kentucky have become
very partial to Chartreuse colored flies, and they tore this fly a new one this past late Summer
and early Fall. It is also very easy to see in the water.


Nice tie. Do you build an under-body beneath holographic tinsel? What color is the holographic tinsel?

Have tied the stealth bomber. Great bas and bluegill in Florida. Tying is not as bad as it looks.

Like it.
Chartreuse has worked for me the last month or so.

Looks good. For that foam, the Liquid Fusion is a good choice.

The two bits on the outside I use the most. I think the one for the solid eyes on the right is 4mm eyes and the one on the left is 6 mm eyes. You can get a little variety pack/case of those brad tip bits from Harbor Freight for a few bucks with a coupon.

The GCC, along with the Texas Council of the IFFF, annually co-sponsors the "North Toledo Bend Rendezvous".  Held the first weekend of November at North Toledo Bend State Park near Zwolle, LA, the 2013 Rendezvous was the 25th anniversary (since 1989) of this gathering of fly tyers representing fly fishing clubs from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and beyond.  With no planned activities, but plenty of fly tying, food, fly casting instruction and fly fishing, and with only a minimal fee to cover lodging and meals, the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous remains one of the top tying events held each year in the U.S.A.

If you have never attended the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous or haven't been in a while, your are hereby invited to attend... Hey, we haven't gathered on the shores of Toledo Bend and thrown this party for 26 years for nothing!!! We have a great time, and it is your chance to sit down and tie flies with some of the very best tyers in the Deep South! No matter if you are  beginner to tying or a master of this craft, you will learn a lot (or at least have fun tying with your friends &/or teaching others), and you will have fun!

Hey Kirk, What size Brad bits do you find you use the most on the bugs?
