    Glo Bugs...

    It's getting to that time of year when I start my mass glo bug production. This is in preparation for the spawn at the CR, which unfortunately has practically reduced to nothing over the past few years . But....none the less...I still make them just in case. In years past, the trout were so thick that you could almost walk across them! I'm talking fish 20"+ everywhere! Those were the days.........back to the present...I have always preferred a yellow glo bug for browns, and an apricot glo bug for bows. After having gone through so many of the traditional glo bug patterns due to the sheer number of fish I was catching there...I switched over to hot glue gun eggs. Their duribility is great, and they get down quick...unlike the yarn eggs. If you all haven't tried the glue gun eggs, give them a try....I really like them.....and they are so quick to make, just dab on the glue and let dry....well, my glue gun has heated up....OFF I GO!!!

    I read that from a John Gierach book once, AK Best daid it to Gierach because nobody was catching anything all day and Gierach tied on a streamer and caught the only fish of the day!

    I do as well...they make a great attractor for your second nymph, and trout will hit them year round. They just go nuts on them when the real eggs are floating around! love it!
