A spun deer hair topwater fly that catches more then just the eye of a fishermen.
This Deer Hair Bass Bug is Umpqua’s spin on Dave Whitlock’s Deer Hair Bass Bug. The workmanship in these bass flies are second to none. Do not let this fly fool you, it doesn’t just catch the eye of a fishermen, this is a fishy fly that just works. The spun deer hair lets this fly sit very high on the water and makes a nice big Ka-Plunk style pop on the surface grabbing the attention of fish from far distances. Perfect for big snake head, large mouth, small mouth, sunfish and a myriad of gamefish. The fly is about 2.5″ long.
This lure is great around lily pads and weeded areas, as it sits high on the water and is not prone to get caught. When twitched, a nice “bloop” really attracts the fish in the area… down in South Florida, this bug also catches the eye of some gar and gators!
