Terrestrial season is a high point in my angling year. 

Some of the fisheries that I frequent require highly accurate imitations to achieve ultimate success.  Others do not.  For those bodies of water I created my North Park Nasty.

The marriage of buggy and buoyant always brings a smile to my face.  This pattern has both.  The simple use of a grizzly hackle and Sexi Floss legs create the underwater profile of this pattern.  2mm tying foam forms the top surface, greatly bolstering the ability of this bug to float.  

With the chaos that forms the schedules of most tiers everyday lives, free time is a valuable commodity.  The North Park Nasty compliments this fact by requiring a very minimal amount of time to create.  In addition to this, the techniques used in its creation lend themselves to tiers of all skill levels.  

When fishing this bugified creation, I keep it tight to the bank or available structure.  While I sometimes run a small dropper off it, I prefer to fish it solo.  Despite its larger profile at the top of its size range, its hackle foundation provides a delicate arrival on the water’s surface.  

If you’re looking for a time saving tie, the North Park Nasty is your answer.  This terrestrial imitations requires a minimal investment of minutes.  Yet its buoyant and buggy profile combine to form the needed elements of a productive pattern.
