For September, we will tie a modified version of Terry and Roxanne Wilson's famous Bluegill Bully Spider.  This version was first tied by A.J. Rosenbohm, President of the FFI Gulf Coast Council.  Bill Morrison and Jim Johnson did well with this fly while fishing in New Orleans City Park for the Rio Grande Cichlid.

This is an easy and effective fly to tie, suitable for both beginners and advanced tiers.  All materials other than thread will be provided, and we have several sets of tools for beginners to use during the session.
