The Lightning Bug is a nymph that has no real-life counterpart but somehow has the ability to trigger a strike. Z-lon is used to create the tail, and rainbow-colored tinsel is wrapped to form the body of the fly. At the thorax, we tie in four transparent red legs to add movement in the water. Pink dubbing and a Z-lon wing case finish off the thorax. Finally, a Nymph-Head bead is used to sink the fly to where the fish are.
This pattern is now the smallest fly we offer!
