Killer Bug

A simple yet highly effective attractor nymph fly.


They don't call it the Killer Bug for no reason. Originated by the famed English river keeper Frank Sawyer, this simple but highly effective scud will fool even the spookiest of fish. The fly is best fished with an “induced take” – sight cast, let the fly drift toward the fish, and as the fly nears its target raise your rod making the fly rise up in the water. The action renders the fly irresistible to trout and grayling. The Killer's ability to be a true multi-purpose fly makes it a must-have in every fly box.

    Fish love it - 5/7/2015

    Went out fishing with my dad this past weekend, while he tied on three or four flies I tied this one on and didn't take it off until we where calling it a day. The fish loved it! Simple pattern fly but it works.

    Buying flies online, sight unseen made me a bit nervous. When my parcel arrived with a dozen assorted flies, I was VERY happy indeed. Quality and craftsmanship exceeded my expectations.

    Fish love bugs. Something. You can fish most of the year with success. Who doesn't love bugs? Drop one it, then pull out a trophy.

    Looks simple but it does wonders. Wouldn't but if I didn't like it. Orvis flies are top quality.

    More than consciously optimistic about this one. It will be the first fly I cast this weekend
