The Devil Bug can be tied in a variety of styles and colors.  This week Tim Flagler shows how to tie a version that is pretty close to Gary Borger’s orginal design, conceived as an adult caddis imitation but useful in many different situations. “To me,” says Flagler, “one of the most attractive things about a Devil Bug is how many ways it can be fished. It floats like a champ and produces well when dead-drifted.”
