featured, Fly Patterns, Step-by-Step Tutorials — By Kevin Hospodar on July 19, 2012 10:11 am
Not every fly requires expensive materials to look good and catch fish. While digging through the Hatches flytyingforum.com, I found this “Glove Bug” pattern. This pattern uses a glove that is normally used for washing a car to create a simple, clean, and effective pattern.
This fly is made from a car wash glove. Thus the name ‘Glove Bug’ The glove is made from Micro Fiber. This fiber really soaks up the water which makes it sink well.
First cut a piece off the glove and remove some of the fibers to get the tail the length you want.
Tie on to the back of hook. Tie on eyes at this time also.
Tie on chenille and bring thread back to where the legs will be placed on.
Wrap chenille around hook shank and over and under eyes bringing back chenille to where thread is and tie down. Cut chenille and tie on legs.
Now go get the Panfish.
