That's true, in the smaller sizes.

In the larger sizes they look like crane fly larvae, and that is what Walt Young, the originator had in mind.

But they also look like mayfly nymphs, caddis larvae, and baby crayfish, that someone STEPPED ON.

Tie some with a bead (brass, copper, or gold. not silver). The beadhead version is a terrific fly when the water is up and off color.

A somewhat forgotten fly. I never got into fishing them, but I had friends who murdered them on honey bugs.

I'll have to stop by your shop and pick up some. They'll go well with my newly begotten Fenwick Feralite.

No doubt troutbert, it is a very suggestive pattern thats why its so effective. But it was designed as a crane fly larvae.

Did anybody suggest the Whitlock Fox. Sq, nymph?

If not, I will.

Like the hare's ear and the simple muskrat glob nymph and several other fur-based nymphs, the Whitlock nymph is one of those flies that the rattier it looks, the better it works. That's a big plus in my view, because it means I can tie them somewhat sloppily and make believe that I intended to do so...

It's good with or without a bead (but not silver, which is useless) and with or without a wing case. Sizes 6-18.

I don't do photos online, but here is a pattern: http://www.flymartonline.com/modules. ... article&name=News&sid=295

I always carry at least 50 of them..

Honey Bug is an awesome fly. The work great as sucker spawn. When I worked in the Lehigh Valley, I would fish the little lehigh at lunch. In early spring it wasn't uncommon to catch 5 or so fish in an hours lunch. Something about the cotton chenille makes the fly look really fleshy.
