Blue Killer Bugger
by Mike Strother
I caught my fish of this challenge, a rainbow trout yesterday using a Killer Bugger tied with your Blue yarn, red wire and a white marabou tail on a size 8 hook. Since the water was high and VERY off colored I knew I needed to present something with a larger profile and in contrast to water. I modeled the fly after a successful lure a friend uses in these conditions, a jointed Rapala countdown with a blue back, white belly and red streaks. It's basically a "bleeding shad". Unfortunately the decent sized 'bow slipped away before I could snap his picture, but I wanted to share my experience anyway.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
