Whether you’re looking to fool brown trout in search of an easy meal in the middle of winter or prospect your favorite freestone stream for brookies in April, the Bead Head Girdle Bug Jig Fly is a nymph that you can rely on for it all. Taking inspiration from Frank McGinnis’s original Girdle Bug, this nymph is tied with rubber fibers for its tail, antennae, and legs and has a body of chenille. Where it differs from the original is in its bead head and jig construction, which makes it sink quickly and ride with its hook pointed up to prevent snags. A strong pattern for Euro Nymphing or just floating underneath of an indicator, this is a fly that works well in any moving water environment.
The Bead Head Girdle Bug Jig Fly is a nymph packed with movement that excels as a general searching pattern or as a direct imitation for stonefly nymphs. Because this fly matches stonefly nymphs so well, it’s a bug that you can get away fishing in larger sizes like 8-10. A must-have whether you’re in Montana or Central Pennsylvania, the Bead Head Girdle Bug Jig is worth carrying in a few colors every day of the year.
