Cress Bug Jig Head

When fishing spring creeks (and other streams with water cress), don't forget about the Cress Bug! This fly is effective in many situations, and I primarily recommend fishing it in the riffles as part of a nymph setup. When tying the Cress Bug, be sure to focus on the key characteristics, as mentioned in the video. Have fun with this one, and definitely get it into your box!

Featured in this video are the J100BL hooks from Allen Fly Fishing; you can find those hooks and many others at the following link: http://www.allenflyfishing.com/j100bl-jig-nymph-barbless-thin-wire-hook/

Thanks for viewing this YouTube fly fishing tutorial, and I encourage you to view my additional videos at the following website: http://www.troutandfeather.com

Fly fishing for beginners can be difficult at first, thus be sure to stick with it and ask others for advice. If in the need for some helpful tips and other fly tying and fly fishing information, be sure to check out my "Trout and Feather" accounts on Facebook and Instagram...

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
