Beaded Bluegill Bug
Gapen's have added these new summer & winter fly/jigs to their winter line of lures due to the excellent results on panfish and trout during a three-year research study. They've proven to represent the natural food of the insect-feeding fish species.
When working this style of winter jig, do so very, very slowly. Allow the fly/jig to settle, then twitch it gently upwards and repeat the procedure as often as it takes to entice the fish. You may, if you wish, add a tiny piece of worm, maggot or waxy.
