Fly of the Month: May 2021

Glow Bugs

Probably the most effective cold water winter fly pattern. The Glo-Bug has proved itself for over 60 years now.
Originating in California this easily tied pattern is successful wherever trout are. In fast, slow or still water this fly will attract pre-spawning and other trout when standard natural patterns are less interesting.
