boys over at the Angler's Den asked me for some flies so today I finished up a bucket o beetles for the bug puppet connoisseurs in the Croton watershed. You can pick these guys up in their shop, but even better, I figured I would throw up a quick tutorial on how to make it yourself so you can grab the materials and tie a few dozen for the price of a handful. Sorry for the quality of the video but I had to get it up fast to make room for other projects, Ill replace it with a better copy as soon as I get the chance.
