Video Clip of a Eumer Monster cone on a Bow River Bugger

Here is a clip of one of my favorite flies on my home waters.

It is a Bow River bugger with a Eumer Monster cone instead of the classic white deer hair muddler head.

The Eumer Monster cone causes the fly to swim side to side in a very seductive way, and makes the fly appear to be swimming. The disturbance on the water flowing over the wing and tail gives it all the action

Here is the link to the clip.

Enjoy.

Paul, nice looking fly and nice movement in the water...I was waiting for a video surprise, expecting to see that bow river bugger engulfed by a monster 'bow. Any chance there is a pattern recipe in print available for review? Thanks. Ed

Hi Ed.

Sure. Here is the pattern

Tail- Black marabou with two strands of electric blue flashabou, doubled over and locked in to make 4 strands
Body. - Tie on a two piece plastic tube. Large black hook/junction tube lined with a small black plastic tube. Body is small olive chenile.
Ribbing- Med copper wire as a counter rib
Hackle- Palmered over the body, Grizzly saddle, counter ribbed by the copper wire.
Collar.- Natural deer hair tied as a collar and with the tag ends clipped short ( the tag ends are covered by the Eumer Monster cone.)
Cone- Eumer monster cone. White, Black or flourescent Orange. Use a med viscosity super glue on the thread wraps used to bind down the deer hair butts. About a BB sized drop will lock the thread and assist in locking on the cone. Leave about 2mm of liner tube exposed after placing the Monster cone in place. Then curl back the lip with a bic lighter.

Here is what the finished fly looks like.

Thanks Paul, the closeup shows so many different things that scream buggy and eat me. Thank you. Now I have some materials to gather for tomorrow's session of showing the kids a new fly pattern. They make me tie up a new pattern every time I'm home with them for the day. I don't have any of the cones, but I'll find some soon.

Googled them yesterday and here is one location with a source. After your trip to Joann's or Michaels do you recall seeing any craft stuff that could be used with such a flared cone? There has to be some sort of washer that could be used for both weight and movement that would be cheaper than about a buck a cone.

If anyone has other sources, I'm all eyes!

I'm looking at going to the hardware store tomorrow for solder (weight). I'll check it out then.

Yes, thanks Paul.

It is Ed, however it's cheaper than buying 'em all the time.

I'm trying to learn this weaving technique - it's a little frustrating but challenging.

I just tied up some homegrown versions of bugger/streamers on some tubes and placed a tiny washer that I had for another craft project. I'm sure my version will suck compared to the real thing, but I was bored, everyone else was sleeping and I still had beer to drink. If I can find that darn camera I'll take some photos, this was my first crack at tube flies. Gotta love that nor-vise. (thanks fdc)

WoZ, check my post on my first try at tube flies...size 6 washers with a neat shape, maybe they will work, maybe not, but they were available in my hardware pile. I'll keep looking for something similar before biting the 8.95/10 bullet, but that swimming action makes me say here fishy fishy.
