Ugly Runners. I guess that's what you'd call 'em. Ugly Bugs tied on Road Runner heads. Whatever you want to call them, I have several tied and ready put to the test next week at North Carolina's Nantahala River, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the trout think. I have a few other ideas spinning in my head as well and am likewise eager to test those ideas. I'll tell more if they work!
With the delayed harvest season having just opened, there should be plenty of trout in the river. I just have to convince them that they want to eat.
