    Default My New Bug

    I have used this fly in the past for swinging steelhead and hope to be doing that again soon in Oregon if flows are good. I got the general idea for the fly from Andy several years ago when I was in the shop. I tie the trailer hook on with fireline. It is flexible but rigid enough that it does not tangle. I put tear mender on the fireline before wrapping the cross cut rabbit fur. Tear mender is a fabric glue that holds the rabbit fur on but stays flexible. I have also fixed a few pair of pants with it. Kind of an interesting fly and it has caught fish.

    Looks great John, can’t go wrong with an egg sucker!

    I'm sure that would catch a few LMB. I often use a black egg suck'n leech in a 3/0 for bass fishing. the season is just around the corner, all we need now is some water.

    I am also fired up to do some bass fishing but I need to stay calm, catch a few steelhead and wait for it to warm up. I have a bunch of bass flies from last year so I don’t want to get into tying those right now.

    That looks very fishy- what size hooks are you using there?

    The trailing hook is an Owner size 4. The front hook is a size 2 but I cut it off so it does not matter but you do want the front to be a short shank to max out the motion of the fly.
