McKenna's Rumble Bug
I originally designed this fly for some friends fishing the Rumble in the Rhododendrons' down in Cherokee, NC. After seeing the water become tea colored from rains, I settled on contrasting Glo-Brite Purple and Orange floss with an extra flashy UV Rainbow dub collar to stand out in the current. The lemon-barred wood duck tails give the deadly pattern one of nature's best triggers. Oh, and by day two, they had the competition won and this fly got its name, The Rumble Bug!
We tie the Rumble Bug on premium Firehole #516 barbless Jig hooks, andcoat the pearl tinsel with Solarez UV Bone-Dry resin for extra durability.
