Nymphs That Combine For Double Trouble (Lou Verdugo’s Recommendation)

Lou Verdugo~Guide & All Around Nice Guy

I travel on business to Eugene, Oregon now and then and I always try to stop into The Caddis Fly Shop to look about. Everyone in the shop is helpful, but Lou Verdugo is especially  pleasant and helped me several times solve problems. Yesterday, he recommended to several customers the nymph combo of the Possee Bugger and the McKenzie River Mega Prince Nymph Kick Ass Take No Prisoners combo. Actually I added all that extra after Prince Nymph. The combo has been exceptional, of late, on the McKenzie and Lou assured me it is equally seductive on the Deschutes River. I believe this is a good tip because Lou was departing for Christmas Island in few days and the euphoria of such a trip probably caused him to let his guard down and divulge his secret weapon(s). Query this blog or Oregon FF Blog for tying instructions for Possee Bugger. The Mega Prince is a radical version of the standard Prince Nymph, but with barred rubber legs, bead head, ice dubbing, copper wire tag on bend of hook and a marabou or filoplume tail. The Possee is the trailing fly of this two fly combo, dredge the bottom setup. I think I lucked out with Lou’s momentary lapse. Best wishes to Lou at Christmas Island.

Small world moment: Lou worked many years with HP. He is going to Christmas Is. with a contingent of long time friends from HP…the same bunch of very amazing men I was fortunate to meet on my trip to Christmas Is. a year  and a half ago…
