Help required!

Now that I've been tying for a month or so I'm starting to overthink the whole process. Through my research I've read that the bugger is the main stay for beginners...what which pattern? So, I throw the question to all of you. If I had to bulk up on one or two go to woolly bugger patterns which would they be (colours that is)?

Thanks agian,

MJP

Does that mean the whole bugger is the same colour? For instance, black tail, body and hackle.

yes as near as I can figure from my reading is the bugger is a leech pattern tied so that on the strips in it undulates like a leech swimming. I f this is wrong on my part will some one set me straight. Smile

Hi, I would recommend you this article: http://globalflyfisher.com/patterns/perfect-woolly-bugger/

Especially the black one is a must fly.
