Does anyone have any flies that they have made that they would sell?
I am looking for flies suitable for bream fishing that float.

I have several flies that sink but many times a floating fly will FAR out produce one that sinks where I fish.

If nobody has any they want to sell, where would you buy some?

Thanks.

I've caught a world of bream on regular popping bugs available almost everywhere.

PM me your address. I've got a whole pile of poppers and foam flies that I don't use. You're more than welcome to them.

Don't float but I just placed a order for some of these...not cheap but hand tied and if the bluegill don't fall for them I will be shocked.

Have you used those slow-sinking "bream killer" flies that look sorta like SPIDERS (foam body with white or black rubber band legs)?

They work pretty well, because you can slap the water with them to create some surface action, but they are also a decent bait to fish like a streamer (a couple of quick strips of line to make a wake behind the bait, then let sink).

Amen to the WB! Other flies look great and work well at times, but the most consistent bream fly I've used is a Bead Head Wooly Bugger, Olive or Olive body with black tail, in size 8 or 10. I don't fish it like a streamer; I fish it under a strike indicator and just twitch it. I watch the indicator and pretend that it's a spider or popper. If the indicator acts like a popper, then the fly underneath it is acting properly.

eBay on the wooly buggers!

Easiest fly to tie and deadly. You do want the bead head for weight Cast, count a few seconds to let it sinks and then a slow strip back it. Killer. Panfish can not resist it

These in brown or black will do you. I like the Krystal flash the guy put on these. All that maribou is a big tease to a fish!

Nice, but is that for one WB? If so, that's over $8 with shipping for the simplest fly to tie. I'd shop at your local fly shop first. If it's for a dozen, it's a good deal for sure.
