Nice bug Brandon. I'm always looking for new patterns that will stay on top for my indicator. I'd rather fish an indicator with a hook in it than yarn or a thingamabobber. I've been adding to my boxes also. Cheers!A few select trout streams open before may.... gotta get some big hopper dropper stonefly dries ready. This one will float a #12 nymph with a tungsten beadhead, but when the fish come up for the dry they seem to have trouble fitting the fly in their mouth :lol: still works, though. posted it on ifish for the fly tying contest last year, this ones always in my trout box now.I made the one pictured with makeshift materials, got better colors and legs now..ill post a fresh pic when i return from the east side of the state
nice buggers.Been playing more with dubbing loops. Created some interesting bugger variants that I dub the "Hairy Bugger"
They use deer hair spun up in a dubbing loop to form the collar, instead of using a hackle feather. I also substitute Ice Dub for the body vs chenille.
