Utah Killer Bug

In this "Two Minute Fly Tying" video, I share the modern version of the Utah Killer Bug that I fish. This pattern is incredibly simple to tie, and I give a few tips that may help you out. Thanks to my friend, Tom Glass, for sharing this one with me. Also, shout-outs to Frank Sawyer and the Tenkara Guides! ;-)

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.
