Gurglebug divers

Have been tying a few surface lures over the last few days. All range in size between 100m - 200mm long and have varied some with weed guards and some rubber legs of the sides of them. One can use these as poppers but I like to fish them on an intermediate line letting the line sink a few seconds before I start my retrieval. Depending on how deep your fishing, the foam head, although having a plate at the back of the head allowing the bug to dive, it will start to float back to the surface giving the fly a wicked action through the water column,especially the eel/salamander bugs tied with Zonker strips. They might look like Bass flies but having to downsize the images hasn't done them much justice.
