Pink Bug Variant

With the current water conditions unsuited for fishing I am left at the tying table preparing for fall, the main Grayling season of the year.
The Pink Bug has performed well for me last fall. It seems to do its best fished under an indicator - either French style spiral or a bushy dry fly.


The tie:
#16 Tiemco TMC 2499BL hook (short shank hook, length is about normal size #18)
2,3mm Tungsten pink beadhead
Orange Hends Grall thread
Red rooster hackle fibres
fine copper wire
Opossum dubbing mixed with UV flash
