Tailwater Sow Bug
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.
