Gibby's Skitter Bug

Gibby's Skitter Bug
Hook: No. 8 Gamakatsu S-10 3F
Thread: 8/0 Uni Chartreuse
Tail: Marabou
Flash: 3-4 strands pearl Krystal Flash
Under-body: Pearl micro-chenille
Body: White foam
Popper: Large Sequin
Eyes: 3D prism eyes

This is one of my favorite bluegill patterns.  I happened on a good bluegill spot this morning and grabbed this pattern...had a blast!  The sequin adds a nice popping action to a very simple streamer.

This is one of Steve Gibson's fantastic patterns.  Steve's Myakka Minnow is another killer for bluegill!

  1. I've been lucky enough to fish with Steve a couple of times, he is a fantastic angler and a wealth of knowledge. Glad to see somebody else tying some of his flies!
