Wobbling flies

I was just wondering if any innovative tiers out there have managed to come up with a wobbling fly yet. I have been experimenting with epoxy heads, but haven't managed to perfect anything yet.
Regards, John

The closest thing I've come across that can still be called a fly is Bob Popovics Pop-lips which utilises silicone to create a diving plane.

Also look at the Tullis Wiggle bug which uses shaped foam to get the same effect. You could probably get similar effects by experimenting with tightly packed/clipped deer hair.

Thanks very much for the reply. I wonder if you could tell me where I would be able to see a picture of these flies, or better still, instructions on how to tie them.
Regards, John

Hi ya Buntinbee

Here's a wobbling epoxy pattern I came up with. It wobbles quite well and has the added attraction of the twister tail. I also tie it with a sili-leg tail (5-6 strands). I use larva lace or V-rib to form the frame for the epoxy similar to tying an epoxy glass minnow. Creative rotation of the tying vice results in the spoon shaped body.

I call this fly a "Bonetwiggle"..."Bonefish/twister/wiggle"...go figure?

Give it a shot!...this fly accounted for my largest bone on a trip to Eleuthera this March/April.

Best regards,

Henry

What is a twister tail?

The fly looks interesting, but where do you get the tails? Are they bass lures?
Thanks jfk

Hey flyjkol,

You hit the nail on the head with the Cabela's. These tails are available in an array of colours. I actually buy mine locally through a local fly shop.

Regards,

Henry

Smile Caves Wobbler

Caves Wobbler
This is my version of a Caves Wobbler. Theses are very popular down here in the Big Easy for Redfish. Mines a little heavier and streamlined than the origional.
I combined several photo's to get a total look at the fly. It's very efective and wobbles nicely .
