This a hybrid wet fly/nymph and is a must have to your fly box. The Buggy Hot Spot is a great attractor fly that will catch fish. CDC hackle fibers, hares ear dubbing, flash ribbing and a orange hot spot will keep the trout coming back for more. The best thing about this fly is it is like a fine wine and gets better with time. As the hares ear dubbing gets worn, it gets buggier looking and helps to catch fish. Some of the guides that use this pattern won't take this fly off until it is a hook and a bead because of its effectiveness.
Buggy Hot Spot is weighted with a tungsten bead on a barbless Hanak jig hook. The construction of this fly is a proven formula to catch more fish:
- Tungsten Bead - gets fly into the feeding lane faster
- Jig hook – less snags and better hook ups as hook rides upward
- Barbless hook – better penetration and less damage to the fish
