Zug Bug Fly Tying Instructions

The Zug Bug has been around for years.  It is a true all purpose nymph.  It imitates a Caddis, Mayfly and a small Stonefly.  It just looks buggy!  The peacock herl in the Zug Bug gives it a shimmer and attracts the fish.  The Zug Bug is a great fly for the beginner once the basics have been mastered.  A bead can be added to the Zug Bug for extra weight.  A must have fly for any fly box!
