Woolly Bugger (Brown)

Articles relating to pattern

One of the World's most efficient and universal flies In a brown version developed for the smallmouth in the Susquehanna River.

robably my best fly on the Susquehanna river. I tie them in black (hellgrammite or leech), brown (crayfish), and gray, usually weighted with lead wire or a bead or two. I like to use a rabbit strip as a tail for slower water. I think a Grey, Black or Copper Frede would translate very well here.
