Bead Head Zug Bug

The Zug Bug ranks right up there with the best fly fishing nymphs in the game and this bead head version has the advantage of getting down quickly. Not only is this a great nymph, but also can be fished like a wet fly on the swing with good result. According to one of our customers, this is a killer carp nymph to fly fish with for all you carp fanatics. Color, Multi. Sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Great All -Rounder,
April 17, 2015
By: McCaslin
from South Carolina
"Like number 6 birdshot for wing-shooters and 6-weight line for fly fishermen, the Zug Bug represents an extremely versatile option for almost any species of fresh water fish . My experience only extends to warm water lakes and streams, but bluegill, large mouth bass, channel catfish, and shell crackers all go for this bead head attractor pattern in size 14."

"Orvis hooked me with the $1.50 fly offer, so I got a bunch, including this Zug Bug, and they look really good for the price. This one is a nice nymph with a really tasty looking flash in the tail, I'm excited to try it."
