Tying the KC Bug

KC Bug

(Kit & Caboodle Bug)



The KC Bug or "Kit & Caboodle" Bug arrived at it's name via the 3 patterns it was patterned after. Looking for a warm-water pattern midway between the Deer Hair Dive and the X-Gurgler, and with the attributes of the Foam Butt Caddis, here are the results. It lands feet down each time, is durable, floats well.....and most of all pulls both bass and large panfish out from under the lily pads and off the edges.
