Tying the Zug Bug Nymph with Davie McPhail

The Zug Bug is an older pattern that bears a striking resemblance to it's a younger cousin, the Prince Nymph. This bug is very popular due to its fish catching peacock herl and is just a little something different from the now commonplace Prince Nymph. The great thing about the Zug Bug is that it can be fished just as you would normally fish a Nymph.
All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Time to tie a Zug Bug Nymph, with the guidance of Davie McPhail.
