With the Bass milling around and the water warming up the most exciting way to get at these fish is with a top water bass bug. One of my favorite ways to fish with bass if with deer hair bugs, below is how you can tie some of your own. Remember kids its all about thread control.
THE FRUIT COCKTAIL
Hook: Any “bass” hook
Thread: Flat waxed nylon, Kevlar Thread for spinning the hair
Tail: Made up of 4 pairs of feathers from various saltwater necks. The colors in this picture are 2 pairs of green grizzly on the inside, chartruse in the middle sandwhiched by orange grizzly on the outside.
Flash: Krystal flash
Legs: Various colors of rubber legs
Body: Deer belly hair
Eyes: Doll Eyes, superglued in place.
First assemble your supplies. Pair your feathers before hand to make tying them in easier.
Put the hook in the vise, if you can’t figure that out then quit fly fishing. Next tie ( with you flat waxed thread) in your rubber legs and add some krystal flash to spice this up. YO, this is tied with a weed guard all up in the bitch but pleas ignore the pictures, I HATE weed guards and cut them off because it makes it harder to hook smaller bass. Sorry not every fish I catch is a 10lb bucket mouth.
For this solid color you’re going to want to “stack” you’re deer hair rather than spin it. You would want to spin for the bands of color we will add later in the tie. MAKE SURE TO USE KEVLAR tying thread for this part.
Spin in some black deer belly hair and then tie in some rubber legs, the same way you would do for the ghetto super yummy.
