light the fuse and toss that bitch in!

Like a Elk in rut, the bass fly fisherman eyes go bloodshot as he pisses all over himself at the thought of the LMB quarter-stick-of-dynamite-in-the-school-toilet explosion. It's enough to give even the part-time fisherman a semi, and it is all the more sweet victory when the water level is too low to launch your bass tracker, you suckers.

I like foam.

This frog has a very dirty name. In Latin I believe it roughly translates to the 'puniceus sperma inflatio'.

Gatta throw some deer hair bugs, too.

Trimming the deer hair with a razor and not accidentally cutting the wings off is ideal.

The last tie Mr. Leed and I were out, I ninja'd a big bastard dragon fly out of the air with my 10wt (actually it was Leeds rod, but you probably don't care) for a closer inspection. The bass seem to have a hard-on for these things on occasion, so I figured I should tie a couple. I have yet to find the perfect wing material, so I guess Swiss straw will have to do for now.

For the abdomen I took to thin strips of 2mm foam and glued them together with a piece of 40lb mono between them, leaving enough sticking out to tie on the hook. Then I made the segments by wrapping with white thread. I colored it with a sharpie, and then coated it in 5-min nail glue. It was a little work, but you can bet that bitch ain't coming off or breaking apart if Mr. Bass decides to partake.

  1. rock on those flies are shit hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. nice stuff there...I make bass bugs like it's going out of that shit

  3. Thanks Mr. Picker!

    Pat- The construction of bass bugs is a relatively new pastime for me, but I am finding it most enjoyable. Being able to stack material on material then super glue the whole bastard together is totally my style.

    I think the next step in the evolution is testing followed by the hunter & gatherer approach to finding better materials.

  4. I'm sorry, is that called a "purple sperm fart"? If so what the hell is a sperm fart?!
