Nymph of the week – Zug Bug

Zug Bug

I am going to fish a lot more with nymphs this season,and I really like the appearance of the Zug Bug. The pattern was invented sometime in the 1930s by a fly tyer named Cliff Zug. It was intended to imitate a caddis larvae,but I think the fish will take it for a good meal anyway. My version is not exactly true to the original…this is a very popular pattern in the US,but not here in Scandinavia. I think it will be excellent for grayling in norwegian rivers and streams.
