Chuck Kraft Boga Bug
A topwater fly for Smallmouth Bass and a staple for Chuck Kraft for decades. Slightly smaller than the #2 and #1 Excalibur and Slotted Bugs and easy to cast. Big profile due to the longer and large legs of this bug. We only offer versions that have been proven for decades.
"These bugs are stupid good."
Jeff Kelble - Potomac Riverkeeper
"For day in and day out big fish on top water Chucks bugs produce. Listen closely to Chucks tips and practice what he says and you will see the results."
L. E. Rhodes - James/Shenandoah Smallmouth Guide
"CK's top water bugs are a prized possession. I've watched him spend hours over his tying table, bringing the raw cork to a polished perfection with his unique legs and tails. His popper out catch and out last the "Store Bought" poppers by at least 5 to 1 in my experiences fishing them. They are effective from Minnesota to Maine to Virginia and North Carolina but are also deadly on other top water feeders as well. I try to always have a good selection of his hand tied miracles on hand."
Dr. Carl Hoffman - Chuck Kraft Client for 30 years.
"The bugs Chuck Kraft has designed over the past 25 years revolutionized topwater fishing for Smallmouth Bass. The largest fish in the river are all well educated fish and they eat Chuck's Topwater Bugs with reckless, suicidal tendency!!!"
Colby Trow - Owner of Mossy Creek Fly Fishing
"Absolutely the best and most durable bugs I have ever fished. Smallmouth can be selective and shy away from factory bugs they frequently see. They can't resist these."
Jim Richmond - New River Fishing Guide
