Have had massive interest in the fly I caught that superb double figure brown trout on at Ardaire last Saturday. So what is the Tarantula Fly – it is a mixture of egg laying blob, worm, and booby! I’m sure someone somewhere out there has something similar tied already but this is my Black Tarantula pattern!!!
Talk about trigger points. This pattern has a Glo Brite tag for starters. Another key feature is the use of the Oval Rainbow Bead for the egg laying element rather than the usual round beads. The finish on this particular plastic bead is fantastic. The body has UV Blob Material. We all know by now that UV can make the difference at times.
Then there are the straggly “worm” legs. Worms are great at this fishery. Finally this version is a booby and has those cool eyes too. Will it continue to work as well as it did on its first outing? I don’t know. The latest version is the Turbo Tarantula but I did not yet get to see how this behaves in the water:
I have a few more tied up in various body colours . . . Orange
So watch this space . . . . . .
