You will need the following materials in order to tie the Foam Beetle:

  2. Grip 53584BN
  3. Grip Sili Legs
  4. Grip Zonker Strips
  5. Cactus Chenille

  1. The above materials are what I like to use to tie the Bass Gurgler.  You may however want to substitute materials as you desire.
  2. I prefer to tie these flies with a matching colour #3/0 thread
