Grub Fly

Grubs are very good bait for fish, and so why not mimic a grub when fly fishing? Well now you can. This nymph skin is awesome and makes perfect segments to look just like a grub. And when wrapped over with mono fishing line, it not only increases the depth of those ridges, but also holds the material into place to keep it from unraveling as easily. Now this is not the most durable fly in the world, and will most likely come apart after just a few hook-sets, it still is worth it to tie since they are easy and cheap to make, and are very effective.

Check out my other YouTube channel where I do gardening and raise chickens with my kids. Those videos are a bit easier to make so I put out about 1 video per day. So if you want more content from me, and enjoy gardening and raising chickens, then check out that other channel. It's called escaping the daily grind, you can check it out here -

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.
