|The FrankenBug, green|
|The FrankenBug, orange|
What will trout think of it? Who knows but with the trigger points such as the life-like hackle, the meaty protein rich-looking center body and the antron fibers creating air bubbles I might just catch a few fish with it. With the season slowing down in many places, I may have to wait till next year to give this fly a full workout but when I do I hope to have good results to report . For anyone interested I have posted the recipe for this fly below.
Hook: Mustad R50-98480 dry fly, size #14
Thread: Pearsall's gossamer silk thread, brown
Hackle: Hungarian partridge
Body: underbody of fine copper wire and Shetland's Spindrift wool (sand color)
colored with a prismicolor marker (sand color) This part is tied like a killer bug.
The overbody is a loose grouping of orange or green antron fibers tied in at the rear of the hook
and folded over to be tied in at the front of the hook.
