How to Tie a Devil Bug

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

Tier and videographer Tim Flagler: “The Devil Bug and patterns like it all kind of merge together in terms of how they’re constructed, named and who invented them. This version is pretty close to Gary Borger’s as far as materials and tying techniques go.

Although they can be tied on anything from a size 8 to an 18, I’m going to tie this Devil Bug on a size 14 Dai-Riki #300 dry fly hook.”
