Unique steelhead “big-bugger” nymph.

Posted on April 13th, 2016

Here’s is Bill Selby’s 3rd nymph pattern that I wanted to share with everyone, especially steelheaders. By the way, these patterns will also work great on panfish, like Crappie, Perch, Bluegill & Pumpkinseed.


This is the 3nd creation, “big-bugger” nymph tied to be 4″ long & designed for murkier or deeper waters (like the Niagara).  Those of you that know the effectiveness of drifting nymphs under a float. The hook-eye location is near the middle of the fly. This enables the fly to hang “perpendicular” on the line to the bottom which produces a tantalizing swimming action as it drifts with the current. Bill uses a special epoxy for the head to make it tapered and living rubber legs to add to it’s movement.
