The Story

The curved hook of this great prospecting nymph fly gives it a natural look. The colors and flash of the nymph make it attractive to feeding trout. The Lightning Bug is a great nymph to fish when other flies are not working and you don't know what is hatching. It imitates many natural nymphs and has a flash to it that trout can't seem to resist.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to Nymph I catch more trout with the Lightning Bug than anything else in my fly box. Fished single or tandem, fish this low and slow with a strike indicator and hold on!
