Carry Killer Bugs They are Great

by Anonymous

Fished a tailwater Sunday with 13 ft Tenkara rod, 7x and killer bugs. The versions tied with killer bug yarn and a sand Prismacolor marker were slightly more effective than the Utah version. Both were tied with pink ultra wire on #4 tenkara hooks.

Had one break off but landed 8 rainbows. Each rainbow was about 12 inches. The break off was bigger than 12. The killer bugs outfished my usual gray pattern which is very effective.

I noticed that a furled line seemed to cast better for the killer bugs especially with a pinch on indicator. A level size 3 line did cast well for small light flies.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"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


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
