Default Re: Glo bugs / egg flies


one other trick you can do when fishing for stockers...................
tie your egg fly in dark brown, trim a little closer to the hook shank.........the Purina Suprima (imatates trout chow). Local fly tier and legend John Faust came up with this for stocked ponds.

Just a side note about John, the big fish in "A River Runs Through It" wasn't a fish at all. It was a fish John made that ran on an underwater track. He named him Fernando. After the movie came out John was asked by the Smithsonian if they could put Fernando on display. John's wife Elna said John spent hours in the bath tub getting Fernando "just right". Now you know.............

fish or DIE
