Madore's BUG  was tied by the late Scott Howell when he was a regular contributor to Salmonfly.Net. You can see more of Scott Howell's flies at The Flies of Scott Howell. See the notes that he wrote about this fly below.

Scotty's Notes:The "Bug" is the creation of Marc Madore, a professional guide and Master fly tyer from Canada. While this pattern was designed for the famed Miramichi river, its grub-like qualities would make it a great damp fly for Pacific Northwest Salmon and Steelhead.
