The Classic Wooly Bugger


Wooley Buggers can be used anywhere for any species.  Because they suggest such a wide variety of food items, it doesn’t matter if you are fishing bass in a lake, or brookies in a creek, wooly buggers can sometimes be the ticket to a very successfull day on the water.  Depending on what type of insect or other species you are trying to immitate, wooly buggers do a fine job of tricking fish into believing they are dragonfly nymphs, leeches & minnows.  Very simple to tie, and I’d recommend to anyone who fly fishes that this be one fly that always has a place in your fly box.
