Rainy's Ugly Bug Beetle
This is a great summer, small stream or river fly. Trout really like a large, calorie rich meal and a lot of beetles are just that. Stocking up on these beetles will give you a fly that has all the trouty features you'll want. Fishing this fly with a dropper on your favorite stream will be even better!
We like to use Fluorocarbon in 5x tied to the hook bend and a small bug, maybe a lightning bug or a bead head pheasant tail as the dropper. It's one of the standby summer trout presentation methods.
