OUR #1 BEST-SELLING FLY!!!!
The Ligon Bream Killer Fly is an ageless old classic wet fly for fly fishing for either bluegill or bass. Remember the old station wagons with the wood panels? This fly is something like that, it’s been around forever it seems. You should always have several of these in your fly box. Here is why they are in such demand.
As one of the most popular underwater flies for fly fishers, it is the number one best-selling fly on the BreamBugs website. It is made of soft chenille and topped with a tuft of squirrel tail hair to allow bubbles to form in the hair allowing the fly to sink very slowly. It also has eight white rubber legs, each leg one- and one-half inches long. Watch our video to see the action of the fly in the water. The rubber legs create lots of action when the fly line is stripped. Even though black is the most popular color the Ligon Bream Killer also comes in the colors brown, white, yellow, green, and chartreuse. They are also available in hook sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.
Ligon Bream Killer Sizes
The Bream Killer can be fished alone or with the Popper/Dropper Rig.
When using the Ligon Bream Killer on a Popper/Dropper Rig we suggest using at least a popper with a hook size 6, size 4
may even be better. This will prevent the Bream Killer from pulling the popper too low in the water. By the way, the popper becomes your strike indicator as well as the fact that it can catch fish, too. Is not unusual to catch two fish on the same cast when using the Popper/Dropper Rig.
