Rainbow Bead Rubber Legged Possie Bugger Fly Tying Video

The Possie Bugger has been our favorite trout nymph locally for years. We have taken it trout fishing all over the west, southern hemisphere and even tied a bonefish version. We have yet to find a fish that won’t eat this simple “hare’s ear like” pattern. Rainbow Beads and Rubber Legs have been added in this version. Without weight on the hook shank this pattern does not have the sink rate that the standard Possie Bugger has but it does catch fish. Depending on how deep you need to get consider adding lead to the shank when using legs and a rainbow bead.–CD
