Lightening Bug

Trout Flies - Lightening Bug 6 Flies - $16.50

A small mayfly nymph imitation with lots of glitter and glam! This little pattern will grab a fish's attention and give them quite a jolt when you set the hook.

A great prospecting nymph for year round. It's especially effective when mayflies are emerging.

2 sizes and various colors to choose from.

Pattern Recipe and Notes:

Hook: Curved Scud size 14-18
Tail: Pheasant Tail or Hackle Fibers
Body: Angora Dubbing
Rib: Flat Mylar
Thorax: Angora Dubbing
Head: Silver Bead

Try a variety of colors for the body. Experiment with the rib spacing. I like a lot more of the dubbing showing through than the standard pattern which only uses dubbing at the thorax and has a full mylar body with wire ribbing over wrapped. This pattern fishes well dead drifted as a searching pattern.
