Articulated Fly - Galloup's Articulated Boogie Man - warm water fly fishing
Well, this is my second attempt at Galloup's Articulated Boogie Man. I may tie the Bottom's Up but I need some rubber cones. I didn't see any at the shop. I can't wait to try these out on some smallmouth bass. AND I KNOW SOME FAT PANFISH WILL TAG THIS WAGGING FLY.
It's been refreshing to get out of the box and do something different other than foam. I'm gonna show a few pics I put on Instagram. Not much but it's something.
This is the back end of the fly. Basically tied up a Bugger with Schlappen and Estaz.
In this photo, I am using a threader to place beads on the connector. The connector can be backing, mono, or a durable craft wire.
I'll probably post more pics as I tie up some different articulated flies. I have only made 4 or 5 of them and Lord knows, I need to make some improvements on these patterns. I usually tie the eyes in so the hooks ride upside down. Not on this fly though. Working my way to the Sex Dungeon but instead of deer hair, I may just use a rubber popper body for the cone shaped head.
Just go to youtube and search "articulated flies" and you can find folks tying these up.
