Featured Fly - The Lightning Bug
The Lightning Bug is one of my favorite patterns to fish year round. This bug can be very effective in the winter months when fish do not want to move very far for food, or in the summer when there isn't any major hatch going on. I like to fish this fly above a small zebra midge or pheasant tail. The Lightning Bug can be tied from a size 14 down to a size 20 or even a 22 if needed. My favorite colors for this fly have to been Red or Orange, with a side of Silver and Black.
