HEADHUNTERS SAYS Sow Bugs are the most important food source for trout in many western tailwaters (and spring creeks!), and the Missouri River is no exception. We have a huge sow bug population, and fish feed on them 365 days a year. The Tailwater Sow is the most popular pattern on the river, and the original no-bead version shown here remains one of the most productive nymphs on the Missouri River. We also carry this fly in a tungsten bead version.
