The Simple and Effective Ray Charles Sowbug

Here is a brief tying video demonstrating how we tie the Ray Charles Sowbug. The Ray Charles is very simple to tie, but this pattern probably catches more Bighorn River trout during the course of the year than any other fly pattern. It is effective year round.

Make sure you have light dun or light tan ostrich herl and you’re good to go. Size 16 and 18 are the best.
