Tricolor Trout Buggy Nymph

Classic flies always work there is no doubt. But sometimes, when we fish on rivers with high fishing pressure it is better if we use new flies. Personally I love to use classic flies but in these situations i tie slightly variations like this one presented.


  • strong hook in size 10-14
  • tungsten bead in any color you like
  • tail from guard fur ( squirrel for small flies and hare for big flies )
  • ribbing made of tinsel
  • body made of light olive-Argentinian hare fur
  • thorax made of brown and black -Argentinian hare fur
  • hot spot made of orange thread

Nothing new under the sun: hare fur, ribbing, bead and hot spot: the complete recipe for success. But this combination of colors ( yellow-olive with brown and black) is a winner for trout fishing. And I’m referring at late Spring and early Summer

In this case I came with a Argentinian fur instead of my classic spiky dubbing because I noticed that in super fast flowing parts a super spiky fly works better. Maybe because is super buggy or maybe because the texture and fibers are working better under the strong water currents. I do not know but I certainly know that they are more effective 🙂

    I think it’s really deadly in size 16 for late spring and summer; well mixed materials compliments Lucian.
