Red Tailed Blue Killer Bug
by Vic Velasco
I ran out of my normal orange scuds so I decided to start using the blue yard you sent. I tied up a killer bug (with a red dubbing tail so I could see the fly) and the bluegill were tearing it up! I used the Nissin Fine Mode 2 Way that I ordered from you earlier this year - opens up several parts of our home turf and it is a blast to bring in a feisty bluegill (but somehow the Daiwa Soyokaze is still MORE fun to use - how would you place the Daiwa Kiyose 27 compared to the Soyokaze?). I will be gunning for the smallest fish (notice to all) - but since I'm tying, I'll post what all I do catch regardless of size. Caught 11 on this single fly for starters.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
