Rainbow Bugger
Well this is my first post here, hope I don't do anything wrong. This is a pattern I started tying a couple years back when living in Idaho, I used to fish it in the Malad Gorge (out of Hagerman). It worked really well on Golden's and Rainbows, purple is probably the most productive, next would be red/brown mylar. I use a tungsten bead for the head to help promote sinking and wrap the hook shank in wire also. I am heading off on Sat. to fish browns on the S.D. WY. border, I will update when I return. (hope the pic shows up)

Re: Rainbow Bugger
you guys are making me miss my old stomping grounds (Greybull Wy). You should be getting strikes with that one travismgause. I've fished the general area you are going and you will be pleased I think.
