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.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
