This panfish pattern submitted by Brandon Creekbaum has the honor of being the first reader submitted fly pattern! This interesting looking subsurface pattern has all the characteristics of a killer panfish pattern.
I wanted a buggy looking fly for panfish with great action in the water so I came up with the Bugger Baum. It’s tied on a Partridge Ideal Jig hook size 10, along with the tungsten bead which makes the fly sink quickly The Bugger Baum has a lot of movement in the water, and the panfish love it. Whether your jigging it on the bottom or striping close to cover this fly works great for blue gill and other panfish. Every time I go fishing for panfish this fly is always in my box!
Hook: Partridge Ideal Jig hook size 10
Bead: Tungsten size can be varied based on sink rate you are looking for.
Tail: Chenille in color of choice
Body: Hareline Carp Dub in color of choice
