This is my second fly I have ever tied. the first one I tied was very similar to this one, but big bass ate it and snapped leader after going deep into the brush :(
Anyhow this fly should also catch bluegills too as did the first one.

Hook: Streamer
Body: Black foam tubing
Thread: 3/0 black
Wings: White saddle
Legs: Peacock barbs

Thanks !

I just got back from fishing and gave this new fly a try. Had 3 misses and caught one blue gill that inhaled it. The little legs where torn off and for some reason the dang fly wont float straight up :confused: It wants to lay on it's side. Got to experiment a little more with it so I can get it to float upright.

Looks tasty!
 
For more durable legs try using pieces of rubber bands or spinner bait skirts.
