Llano Bug

The Llano Bug was created by Kevin Hutchinson to fish the Llano river and some other South Texas rivers for bass and sunfish. The species of bass here that is sought after the most is the Guadalupe bass. But we also have largemouth bass and smallmouth bass, among some other species also. A wide range of sunfish are in the various rivers and creeks in south Texas as well. This fly seems to work wonders for all these warm water species. However I suspect it will work great in most streams and creeks in the US, especially in the summer months when terrestrials like grasshoppers are out and about. Trout should have no problem biting these flies, and I think you will have great luck with this pattern no matter where your fishing them.

As you all know, I work closely with both and Both of these shops have offered every one of my subscribers a discount. So go to their shops, and type in "McFly" at checkout for 15% off of anything you buy on their sites. The hooks risen sells are just as strong, if not more strong than the ones I used today in the video. But priced much more reasonably. So definitely check them out.

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.
