Most of the girdle bugs are tied on size 8, but a few of the hot spot bead one’s are size 10. I love the new legs from MFC, they are more durable and will last a lot longer then round rubber. I keep them long so you can trim them down to size. All great colors for our river systems here in the Ozark’s!

Baby Girdle Bug – Orange Hot Spot Bead (Lt. Olive & Rust)

Fly’s and Guides Girdle Bugs are the perfect stonefly nymph for fly fishing Ozark’s tailwaters, especially the White River. With this new material from MFC called “Sexi Floss”, it really does take these flies to a whole new level of action and durability.

Baby Girdle Bug – Orange Hot Spot Bead (Coffee)

Most of these nymph patterns are tied a little bigger in size 6 and 8, but rarely do you see any tied in size 10. The coffee color ones seem to be the go-to fly for the White River located in Arkansas. I also like having a little attractor to the pattern, that’s why I added the fluorescent orange bead. I leave the legs longer because sometime the trout like them longer, but always have a pair of scissors or something you can trim the legs down with. Another terminology for this fly is also called Pat’s Rubber Leg. Either way, very fishy bug in our river systems.

How To Rig –

I usually fish this fly on 4x fluorocarbon tippet with a 7.5 foot leader that also ends in 4x. The best times are the summer months for sure, but I’ve used it all the way until November on the Norfork. This pattern can be fished throughout the water column, and I have found it to work better if the pattern is suspended off the bottom. I like fishing it somewhere in the middle to higher up in the water column. This is by far the best color, but make sure you check out the other ones, because if it’s on here, it works!!
