Inferno Bugs Tying Guide

1 Comment

These stunning bugs have been a real hit with the Rainbow trout who seem to target the hot spot intense heads plus the stunning Inferno Biots again from Semperfli.

Based on Zug Bug these proved to be deadly on stillwaters over the summer testing. Designed as a combination of the diawl bach and zug bug. Peacock herl bodied flies are particularly attractive and along with the wings, tail and hot spot on a strong Partridge hook makes this a winning fly!

Using the Semperfli inferno biots with the fluoro flame colours of yellow and red we always knew this fly pattern would be good - 'hot' as you might say!

Tie the Inferno Bug yoursel!

Tie in 2 Peacock Herl (alays tie in 2 so it one splits another it tied in!). Tie in the 0.2mm ribbing
Wind forward the tying thread to behind the bead.
Wind the Peacock Herl to the back of the bead
Lift the Peacock Herl and tie in the end nearest the bead. Wrap the ribbing wire forward in open turns leaving the Herl protruding
Tie in the 2 Inferno Biots for the wings behind the bead. These will point upwards initially
With the remaining Peacock Herl wrap 3 times over the wings behind the bead.
