    Arrow Lightning bug and variants.

    The best producing one is the silver jobbie with red rib (original Lightning bug). Try them!

    Hook: Daiichi 1120 #14.
    Bead: Black Nickel / Mercury 2mm.
    Thread: UTC Blue Dun 70 denier.
    Tail: 10x Pheasant tail fibres. (Light or dark)
    Body: Holographic tinsel.
    Rib: Holographic tinsel.
    Thorax: Christmas dubbing.

    Here are my colour combinations;

    Silver with red rib.
    Blue with silver rib.
    Red with silver rib.
    Green with gold rib.
    Black with silver rib.
    Gold with black rib.

    Some of them can pass as huge Midge pupa.

    Here is the gold with black rib just to illustrate.



    All of them.
