Notes on tying:
1. Weight hook with lead wire, and coat with flexament.
2. Stack a small clump of moose mane and tie in for tail (do not trim excess).
3. Wrap hook with light green chenille and tie off.
4. Place 3 or 4 sets of 1 " round rubber legs across the top of the fly at right angle to the fly.
5. Pull moose mane butts used for tail tightly over the top of the body to form shell back and tie down in front.
6. Clip the moose mane, wrap the head, and whip finish.
7. Heavily lacquer the shell back.
This pattern came from an article by Vic Gibson in the Fly Line. It is an excellent pattern for bluegill and panfish. Cast this fly out and allow it to sink. Then strip it or crawl it back.
