Thread Any thread heavy enough to spin deer hair
Tail    Deer hair to match the color of the rear  1/4 of body

Collar Stacked deer hair to match color of body
Body   Spun deer body hair, may be stacked to add more color

Hook                    Straight eye bass stinger 10-1/0
Thread Any thread heavy enough to spin hair
Tail    2 orange hackles with 2 brown grizzly hackles outside
Collar 1 orange and 1 brown grizzly hackle palmered forward
Side wings  2 orange and 2 brown grizzly saddle hackles tied in by the tips on either side where collar ends. Pull back and secure with material clip or thread until body has been spun and trimmed. Then pulled forward along the hook shank to the eye and tie off.
Body Light brown deer body hair spun around shank, trim flat on top and bottom.
Head Bright orange deer body hair tied in and spun after securing side wings
This fly was designed to replace the original Gerbubble bug from the 1920's that is made of pieces of balsa wood glued together.

  

Bass Muddler

Hook Straight eye bass stinger 10-1/0
Thread Any thread heavy enough to spin hair
Tail Marabou plume tied in on top of shank at the hook bend, add a few strands of Krystal Flash or Flashabou to the sides.
Body Silver or holographic mylar tinsel wound around shank from bend to 1/3 shank length behind the eye.
Collar Stacked deer body hair the same color as body, flared evenly all the way around hook shank. A few strands of   Flashabou should be tied in on top of the shank before adding collar.
Head   Spun deer hair last 1/3 of shank to eye, cut into a bullet shape head slightly flatter on the bottom.
A basic muddler minnow type fly, weight can be added as a underbody if the fly is to be fished subsurface. The deer hair head should be tightly packed on floating varieties and less densely packed on subsurface flies. Colors may be changed to fit situation.
