Lemon Lime Bugger

Cheech - October, 2021

Fhis fly pattern has been in action for me for about 20 years, and it's in my box for good reason - It's a verified fish magnet.  This Lemon Lime (light olive) color combo first started with a gold bead, but after switching it up to a chartreuse bead, it produced like we couldn't believe.  I remember one trip where Curtis fished one of these until there were literally just a few strands of thread and a chipped up  bead attached to the hook.  This one is best fished in small sizes like a 10 or 12, so whip some up and smack some trout!
