Vickie’s Predator Bugger
My Predator Bugger is suggestive of many food sources including small bait fish, leeches, dragonflies, and damselfly nymphs. Its undulating tail and tapered silhouette create a highly suggestive fly and trigger opportunistic trout looking for a high protein meal.
This is the perfect choice before the sun hits the water in the morning and at sunset when large trout are cruising along shoreline areas looking for a big, juicy meal. It is also an ideal pattern to use in early spring or late fall when the water is cool and aquatic food sources are scarce. The fly’s visibility is augmented by incorporating UV materials in the dubbing and marabou tail. Flash at the hooks eye adds additional visibility.
