"Ode to the SUB BUG".....

Went out on an early morning pike adventure this morning and was quite unsure how the pikepickin would be. When we arrived to the lake , rain was just starting to peeter off and there was a bit of chop on the water as we had a pretty good north wind. Fished on the outskirts of the weed line to where we thought the bait would be pushed in. Started out slow changed up a pattern and then decided to put on Dave's "SUB BUG" in red and white. What a hell of a pattern this ! If this fly does not look like a wounded baitfish then I don't know what does. I believe my 4th cast and Bam! pike on. I guess the side to side and dive action was just too much. Any way to make a short story, we fished different patterns bunny bugs and perch patterns. Brian had good luck with one of my 7inch long white ,yellow and green slink-n-flash patterns but for me the sub bug was the ticket! I talked with Dave about tying techniques and then made it off to the vise for a go. Dave Lindsay has a site Pike and Predator flies with a great step by step on sub bugs .....visit, tie and hang on. I will be filling a box of these bad boys. Credit to Dave Lindsay for a killer pattern bro!
