Jungle Bugger


Hook
Mustad 79580 size 4
Thread
Black 6/0
Tail
Black Marabou
Abdomen
Black chenille
Bead
Large red opaque glass
Back
Peacock herl
Hackle
Black oversize from a streamer hackle
Cheeks
Jungle cock neck hackle from above the nails
Weight
12 wraps of medium lead wire

This is an original adaptation of an old stand-by. I have found that some of the brown trout in my area are becoming conditioned to the standard gold bead so the red adds a new dimension/look. The jungle-cock hackle cheek gives a defined lateral strip indicative to bait fish. Strip it then let it sink in still pools and the cheeks flare out like wings giving added animation. Finally and the coolest benefit is; if you see crayfish in the water you fish, bend the cheeks forward, add a drop of Loons UV cement, cure and you have a crayfish with extended claws.

Very Cool

Chris,

That is a very cool bug! I like the versatility option that you mentioned in the description - baitfish or crayfish - all in one!
