As I studied mounting spent wings on flies, I stumbled onto a simple spider patterns for bluegill. Bluegill love anything with legs.
As mentioned in the video, there is a weird spider that appears in late summer here that hover, levitates via a strange locomotion. It looks as if it hopping between the limbs on a bush or between the grass top and the base of a tree. The move rather quickly in an oscillatory fashion.
If you slowed it down, it’d look like a special effect in one of these science fiction movies.
Part of this fly comes from the AMP fly I developed a several months ago. I noticed when using deer hair, the fibers would fair out much more than standard bucktail. That flair would have come in handy if I ever tried to tie wings on a fly pattern.
When I first tried the method for tying fiber-based spent wings, the hair flared so much that it reminded me of that spider. So much for tying spent wings. I immediately started on the Simpler Spider.
