This video was posted on youtube from Tightline Video productions. It is an excerpt from the video Practical Fly Patterns That Catch Trout by Eric Stroup and Charles Meck. In it Charles Meck shows his method for tying the Steelers Glo Bug and also discusses the rationale behind it. With Lake Erie steelhead season upon us I thought it would make a good post. I have caught a bunch of steelhead on this pattern, although I’ve changed it up a bit. I have a bad habit of always changing patterns up a bit as do most of us fly tyers. Check out my version here. I make no claims that it is better than the original.
