When bright and gaudy colors aren’t buying you any grabs it is time to switch it up. Our custom Black/Chartreuse Glo Bug is just the ticket. Stealthy but with just a hint of color this is a great change up fly! Tied on a Daiichi X510 hook means you won’t be straightening any of these out on big fish.
Steelhead Glo Bug – Black/Chartreuse #4
Southeast Alaska’s steelhead are the unicorns of the Tongass National Forest. Mostly untouched and unseen. These wild beast can be super aggressive towards big, gawdy flies or they can be super finicky. When they are the latter, throwing patterns like Steelhead Glo Bugs can be the ticket. The black and chartreuse is one of our favorite patterns for tight lipped chromers. An Alaska Fly Fishing Goods exclusive.
