Globug trout fly

Description The Globug trout fly is an egg pattern. Globugs are very popular when fishing for fresh run rainbows, especially in the Taupo region and for fishing the Tongariro River in particular. Consequently they are best used in winter or early spring when the spawning runs take place. . Use the smaller sizes when the water is very clear.

Use Fish as close to the bottom as possible and allow to drift as natually as possible along the river bed. It's usual to fish them in tandem with a heavier nymph Such as an epoxy nymph to sink them to where the fish are. Takes can be very soft and easy to miss.
