Introduction: Flashy Bugger - Underwater Footage!

Picture of Flashy Bugger - Underwater Footage!

Wooly buggers are probably one of the most popular and versatile flies anywhere you fish. From California to Colorado to New York, and not just USA, but other countries as well. Anywhere you can fly fish, you can use a wooly bugger. They work for both fresh and even saltwater, however they tend to be most commonly found as freshwater streamers. These flies are a bit more flashy then the chenille tied buggers, and therefor are better suited in my opinion for more aggressive fish, or even stained water conditions.

Hello again!

Ahhhh another classic, Russell Blessing would be pleased. Your use of scale and proportion is perfect! The Woolly Bugger has ALWAYS been one of my favs. I would LOVE to see what you would do with The Elk Hair caddis... as it is the 60th year since it was first tyed by Al Troth, where( if you don't mind) is your home stream??

Thank you for keeping this wonderful craft of tying alive ! !
