Let’s face it; a lot of our fly tying is not done to impress the fish. From realistic flies that amaze one and all to full dress salmon classics, flies are tied as much as art to hook people as they are to catch fish. I argue the same can be said sometimes for deer hair bass bugs. Do the spots, stripes and fancy colors guarantee more fish? Probably not, but they sure do look cool in a fly box and even better in a picture holding a bass with one of these fancy flies hanging out of the ole bucket-mouth. Don’t be fooled either, these are not meant for just bass. Fancy deer hair bugs take all types of fish.
